Orchid | Paphiopedilum Argus | Botanical Illustration | Canvas Print
Great botanical canvas print of the orcid (Paphiopedilum argus) meticulously restored. Amazing wall art for anyone interested in plants and botany.
Paphiopedilum argus is a species of orchid endemic to Luzon Island of the Philippines.
The plant species name refers to the Greek god Argus, who had one hundred eyes, like the spots on the petals.
The original illustration was first published in 1893 in the "Orchid album: Comprising coloured figures and descriptions of new, rare and beautiful orchidaceous plants" conducted by Robert Warner and Benjamin Samuel Williams.
The botanical descriptions were written by Thomas Moore and the coloured illustrations were done by John Nugent Fitch.
