Handcrafted paper sculpture 2020
Materials: Crepe Paper, Wire, Pastel Chalk, Glue, Paint, driftwood
This is a delicate paper flower sculpture of a Ghost Orchid I created with artist’s Crepe Paper. For my sculptures, I am inspired by the beauty of nature and I try to make them as lifelike and detailed as I can. The delicate and rare Ghost Orchid (Dendrophylax lindenii) is native to Florida and Cuba. It grows on trees and doesn’t have leaves or roots in the ground. The Flowers get pollinated by different moth species. This flower is also famous for its role in the book ‘The Orchid Thief’ and the movie ‘Adaptation’.
