One of the stranger flowers of the deep woods, green-blossomed Jack-in-the-Pulpit is named for its resemblance to a preacher standing in a pulpit, sermonizing to his woodsy congregation. As Caroline Smith wrote (as revised by John Greenleaf Whittier, 1883):
Jack in the pulpit preaches today,
Under the green trees just over the way.
Squirrel and song-sparrow, high on their perch,
Hear the sweet lily-bells ringing to church.
Come, hear what his reverence rises to say,
In his low painted pulpit this calm Sabbath-day.
Fair is the canopy over him seen,
Penciled by Nature’s hand, black, brown, and green.
Green is his surplice, green are his bands;
In his queer little pulpit the little priest stands.
Giclée prints are printed on archival cotton rag. Inks are water based and free of Nickel, PFOS, PFOA and VOC’s, which are harmful to the environment and cause degradation of prints.
Prints are all matted; an 8×10 print comes in a mat to fit an 11×14 frame, an 11×14 matted print fits a 16×20 frame.
