This piece was commissioned by my mother who is gifting it to the chief of the tribe she works for. Here Minnesota is pictured with both traditional native Woodlands style flowers, and representational native flowers of Minnesota placed in the locations where they are found. The green lines both symbolize vines and are the outline of the major rivers of Minnesota. The plants pictured here are:
