The Mortality Spiral of a Silversword

Giclee reproduction of an endangered Hawaiian plant species, the Silversword, photographed in it's last phase of flower production. After it flowers it dies, leaving behind seeds to germinate.
This is a most unusual and rare plant particular to Mt. Haleakala, Maui and is federally listed as a threatened species.

Now available in several sizes, 9" x 12" and up to 24" x 30". Your choice of archival paper or gallery wrapped on canvas.
