'Madame Pele'- goddess of the volcano! The red color of these Miltonia orchids is reminiscent of the molten lava deep in the volcano. The black ‘lava’ flows down the petals and the white snow of Mauna Kea creates a brilliant contrast.It’s amazing, the power of nature, whether it’s the volcanic creation of new land or simply a beautiful flower. The original is a 12x16 oil painting on canvas.
