Original artwork description:

Ginkgo Biloba is also called a living fossil, the genus Ginkgo first appeared in the Middle Jurassic. The modern species survived in a small area in Central China where it has long been cultivated.
The first record of Europeans encountering it is in 1690 in Japanese Temple Gardens, some planted trees at temples are believed to be over 1,500 years old. Because of its status in Buddhism and Confucianism, the ginkgo is also widely planted in Korea and in Japan since the 14th century.
Gingko has been commonly cultivated in North America for over 200 years and in Europe for close to 300, but during that time, it has never become significantly naturalized. The leaves of Ginkgo are unique among seed plants, being fan-shaped with parallel veins.

This refined and exquisite mandala composition was borne from my personal fascination for the strength and peculiarity of this survivor. Interestingly, but my first encounter with Ginkgo Biloba happened in The Botanical Garden in Amsterdam in 2016 where our tour guide explained how that majestic tree arrived in the garden and many other interesting details about the specie. So, the most precious souvenir from the trip to the Netherland was a few leaves of Ginkgo Biloba picked up on the ground. And precisely those leaves were used to draw these mandalas. Organizing leaves in composition I saw that a shape of fish appears in between… so I kept it. Et Voilà! Fishy Ginkgo is borne!

NOT for sale separately. Sold as a triptych.
