Paphiopedilum fairrieanum; The Pagoda Orchid

Original watercolor painting of the Asian Lady Slipper orchid species Paphiopedilum fairrieanum.

11" x 14"

Shown growing in its native habitat on limestone outcrops in Bhutan.  To me, it is the most feminine of orchids, with its delicate ruffled edges and sensual curves.
