Old Man Banksia by Anica Amphlett is an original watercolour painting. It measures 27cm x 37cm and requires framing to hang.


Once the beautiful greenish-yellow bloom head with its thousands of little flowers starts to wither away, the big seed pods appear. It takes a lot of heat for them to open, then this bloom turns into an "Old-Man". The very characteristic open seed pods look so animated. Some look like eyes, others like laughing mouths.  Then there's all those hairy whiskers as well!.
Set on a gnarly branch it is surrounded by serrated leaves, much like a saw.

This painting will arrive in a flat pack, in a supported clear cello wrap and include a certificate of authenticity.

Thank you for stopping by!
