Earth 7: Plant World

Artist Statement: Plant World

Plants are such an important part of our world. They maintain the carbon dioxide and oxygen balance of the earth’s atmosphere that allows for our existence. They provide food and shelter directly and indirectly for most forms of life. They simply add joy to our lives through the beauty of their ever-changing forms. This globe celebrates plants in a very decorative joyful way.
