Orchid Family Rollercoaster
OIL ON CANVAS. ORIGINAL SIZE 21x27.5 in

  • Usually, the South American jungle is associated with mighty rivers gliding along winding riverbeds behind a thick curtain of impenetrable woods and dense, verdant vines.
  • The smooth trunks of huge trees shoot up out of reach of the vine's deadly embrace.

The jungle is a breathtaking background against which to play and have the time of your life from up in a gigantic tree at a breathtaking height. You could well call it a tree of life.

The red wing of a butterfly is like a starting line where the head of the family raises his hand as if to say, "Go!"

The snail, the lizard, and the butterfly form a triad symbolic of the progress of this orchid game: they progress from sliding to flying.
