Werner Bollmann – Stylish Alien

A portrait of a very stylish alien? No, it’s rather the interior of a military orchid’s blossom. Orchid blossoms have a special structure different from other plants. Pistil, stigma and stamina are intergrown and form the so called gynostemium, which gives orchid blossoms their characteristic appearance.
