Artist's Insight:

The dried plant in this piece is called a mimosa.  Some species of the mimosa family found in the artist's homeland of the Philippines close up when they're touch – in Tagalog they're called “makahiya” or “the sensitive plant.” Here, a shy character reaches out to make a new friend.
