Beth Miller - Banksia Nut

previous - next

The seed capsules from the Banksia nut are recognisable to most children as the 'Big Bad Banksia Men' in May Gibbs' storybooks Snugglepot and Cuddlepie.

The flowers have lost their brilliance, becoming coarse dull and hairy with exposed seed capsules emerging from the central cone.
