This image weaves illusion and figure ground play in delicate layers of plant forms. It is a fantasy of lotus plant forms based on some smaller paintings and drawings of lotuses and other flowers. The title comes from the CS Lewis science fiction story. When I was a child, we had a copy of that book, with an illustration on the cover that had similar plant like forms with pods on long stems.
