Illustrated Plant Nut picture

The original Illustrated Plant Nut picture was inspired by a sculpture called "De Zee" or "The Sea".  It is commonly known as Dikke Matilde (Thick Matilda) and is near Leopold Park in Ostende, Belgium. The artist is Georges Grard (1901-1984) who was influenced by Aristide Maillol, Charles Despiau, and Pierre Renoir.

The Plant Nut's illustrations are from pictures from various old books on Google Books. 

After I finished, I realized her form reminded me of our local hills, especially when I compare it to Maguire Peaks.
