Description

Before the King Protea extends into its full form, it rests enclosed within the leaves. Florist Hannah Graney of Nettles Adelaide captured this moment perfectly, and inspired the artist (with full permission) to create this flower portrait. The king remains nestled within the protective leaves and when ready, extends into being.
