Description A wonderful colored pencil illustration of all the many wonders of Panama, from the national bird, the Harpy Eagle, to the shores of the Caribbean to the deep vast jungles. Indigenous children, the Ghost Orchid, the national flower, as well as many other flower species of the country, from the large jaguar that roams the mainlands to the smallest of poison red dart frogs, this wonderful work captures many species, too many to list. A treat for the eyes and a nice vacation to Panama even from the comfort of your couch. This piece did receive Honorable Mention in the 2020 Roberto Lewis Visual Arts Competition held virtually in Panama City. A huge honor to even be mentioned in such a prestigious and large contest.
