Darwin’s Orchid wasn’t discovered by Darwin, but he correctly hypothesized that its long blooms, up to a foot and a half tall, coevolved with a moth with a very long tongue—just long enough to extract its nectar. This flower embodies the great variety of and fascination with the orchid family. Orchids come in all shapes, sizes, colors, textures and scents—perhaps this is why they’ve entranced cultures dating back well over five millennia, becoming symbols of virility, beauty, peace and prosperity in the process.

大彗星風蘭(又稱達爾文的蘭花)並非由達爾文發現的,但他正確地假設了該蘭花長達一英尺半的花距,是與一種舌頭很長的飛蛾共同演化——長舌頭讓飛蛾剛好夠提取蘭花的花蜜。這朵花展現了蘭花家族的多樣性和無窮魅力。蘭花有各種形狀、大小、顏色、質地和氣味——也許這就是為什麼早在五千年前各種文化就為之癡迷,同時逐漸成為陽剛、美麗、和平與繁榮的象徵。

Cattleya

Named “Cattleya” after my first rare orchid, this work is my Ode to Orchids—a mystical flower that brings me endless delight. Read more about the inspiration and process here.
