This is in part a tribute to victims of the 2002 Bali bombings and their friends and families. From time to time, their lives are remembered by releasing flowers (frangipanis) on the water - a custom which I believe was inspired by one particular victim, a 15 year old girl, Chloe Byron, who liked to wear frangipanis in her hair.

There is other symbolism intended too, but I will leave it to readers to fathom (no pun intended) that for themselves.
