They were used for a food source by the indigenous peoples, and were both gathered in the wild and cultivated. The Aztecs used them to treat epilepsy, and employed the long hollow stem of the flower for water pipes.

Giclee on Paper

Giclees are one-of-a-kind works that contain the same physical properties of their original. Pronounced "zhee-clay", giclees are printed at high resolution on canvas using pigment-based inks. These large-format prints are known for their higher quality and longer lifespans.

About the Artist - Charles Beckendorf

Charles grew up in Mathis, Texas, where he had the opportunity to spend hours on large ranches. Generous land owners gave him permission to wander freely over their ranches and he observed creatures in their natural surroundings. He developed a lifelong love of nature, whether it be in the tiniest of flowers or the largest of animals. It was at this time that he became a true naturalist.
