Irregular shaped Inga bean seed pods

Pod Body

I love seed pods.

I love their symbolism, their form, and their work in the world.

This paintings was inspired by the seed pods of an Inga bean tree that grows in a local garden.

The tree is native to the Brazilian Amazon and has been used for thousands of years as a snack food in Central and South America.

The seed pods I collected were all different shapes and this one seemed of speak of our human (especially female) energy flow. 


The painting is acrylic on canvas 405 mm x 305 mm.

It is varnished with painted edges so is ready to hang.
