One very detailed, embroidered piece of a white and maroon coloured Pansy Orchid (Miltoniopsis) flower. Hangs in a stained bamboo hoop with a silver chain.
Miltoniopsis, the Pansy Orchid, is aptly named: the flowers look like a large pansy. The flower's labellum, or lip, usually has an attractive pattern of lines on it. They are often confused with the related (and similar) Miltonia orchids, and many people use the two genus names interchangeably by accident. These orchids originate in South America; there are six species, from Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Panama, and Venezuela.
