I LOVE ginkgo leaves. Not only are they majestic in beauty, the ginkgo (aka ginkgo biloba) is found in fossils dating back 270 million years. Native to China, the tree is widely cultivated, and was cultivated early in human history. It has various uses in traditional medicine and as a source of food.
Each ginkgo leaf is an actual leaf that I traced on brass sheet metal, sawed out, forged and shaped by hand, not casted, so each one is unique.
