Wild Orchid Art - Wildflower of Palestine - Orchis anatolica
Wildflowers of Palestine botanical art series features Palestine's beautiful wildflowers in watercolor.*
Painted by Botanical Artist Lois Nakhleh, the Orchis anatolica (Anatolian Orchid) displays the stunning shape and color of this wonderful wild orchid.
The Orchis anatolica is an endangered flower. The tubers of this orchid are particularly sweet scented and contains a chemical which acts as a thickener for pudding. In the past they were massively dug up to produce a desert called “sahlab.” This resulted in their reduction to the present precarious state of so few remaining.
Lois Nakhleh has been painting wildflowers of our region for the last 17 years, engaging watercolor as her painting medium of choice.
All profits from the sale of Wildflowers of Palestine botanical prints are used for wildflower conservation in Palestine at Mashjar Juthour. Read more about their work on their website or follow them on FB.
