Glass Art on display at Phipps Conservatory

Anyone know what Orchid this is? If you saw the movie Adaptation, you may is the ghost orchid native to the everglades in Florida. Although, if you look close you will see it is not a living plant, but an amazing glass sculpture! This and many more beauties are on display at The Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh, PA. If you have the time, its worth the trip! Plus you can check out their new Tropical Conservatory, perhaps the most energy efficient greenhouse of its kind in the world!

  1. I thought that it is a living plane. It is amazing. Very realistic, maybe too much.
