Natura Mirabilis – Panel No. 9

This photo (80 x 120 cm) is located rue Sainte Anne.

At first glance, the ovoid fruits of the Atlas cedar look like, pine cones. It takes no less than three years for the cones to mature. After a few weeks on the ground, the scales of the female cones part and fall off to release the seeds. And all that remains of the cone is this rose shape.

On the cartel

The fragile rose asked the cedar for the secret of its eternity. Obediently, the cedar promised to help it resist time. It has remained since then, turned to wood but always fresh despite the rigour of winter.
