Flora’s┬áLimbs references elements of Rose Cathedral, in the Rose Garden at the Auckland Botanic Gardens, Manurewa.

This originated from ‘Short Embrace’, a medal in the 2004 MANZ exhibition. It, in turn, came from another medal, ‘Katybird‘, I did for a 2002 MANZ exhibition in which I explored ideas around anatomical relationships between flora and fauna. This featured a native Tui on a branch on the obverse, and a Katydid cricket on the reverse.
