Abstract of a mesquite seed pod

This is a photograph of a mesquite seed pod I found on the grounds of the Miraval Resort during my artist-in-residence there this summer. The mesquite trees are about all the shade you get in the heat of the desert, and the crunching of the pods underfoot is a common sound as you walk the grounds. This is from my Miraval Collection — art inspired by the plants and gardens and plants I found during my artist residency at the Miraval Arizona Resort.
