I came across this seed pod while on a trip to Costa Rica. I was looking for rocks one day by the Bijagual river when I spied something colorful on a little island mid-stream. When I made my way over to it I was delighted to find the most unusual seed pod I had ever seen. The resident botanist informed me the pod was from a Coral Tree and its incredible colors and shape inspired this linocut. Visit my blog, Nessy Designs, for more images and further details about the process.
The video shows me pulling the fourth and final color of the Coral Tree print.
