Each flower painting is inspired by the same copper print, and the variations demonstrate how a painter uses her creative freedom to make unique products. Thus, if you order a Flora Danica piece you can never know exactly how the motif will look. And that, we believe, is the true beauty of Flora Danica. Here you can get one step closer to Flora Danica – pick up a piece and turn it around.
