In a pastoral European-style room, you’ll find more than 40 types of wildflowers made of paper. 

All pieces of art were created based on images of exotic flowers humans discovered from 3 different types of forests: tropical forest, temperate forest, and taiga (snow forest).

Note: Refrain from touching any of the work because they’re fragile.

The masterpiece of this exhibition is a life-sized stinking corpse lily made of papier-mâché, which is positioned in the centre of the room.

Some smaller flowers are elegantly displayed on shelves, while others are made to look like they’re being ‘preserved’ in a book. 

During your time here – you’ll feel just like a botanist from 19th century England.
