About this object
Acrylic on paper featuring red warratah flowers and teal leaves on a white background.

Warratah (D69) is one example that demonstrates Avis Higgs' use of Australian flowers in her designs. The value of such designs is in the simple and stylistic representation of the plant rather than its botanical status.
