Ghost Orchid Bronze Sculpture

Ghost Orchid 
Bronze Sculpture

The Ghost Orchid aka: Dendrophylax lindenii

The Ghost Orchid intrigues me the most. Books & Blogs have been developed, several novels have been written about it and a Movie, Adaptation with Nicolas Cage & Meryl Streep was based on the book, The Orchid Thief...there is just a lot going on with this particular orchid.

It is perhaps the most revered orchid in the United States, if not the world and It is one of the rarest orchids found only in South Florida, Cuba, and Haiti, most likely existing on other nearby Caribbean islands in addition and I am proud to say, I had the pleasure of seeing this leafless orchid in person!

A great blog for additional information on the Ghost Orchid: http://www.ghostorchid.info/

I sculpted this bronze sculpture in wax, exactly like my jewelry I make and then we cast in piece in Bronze. I added a high polish finish to the front of the flower and a stain finish to the back.
