Megaloceros giganteus, commonly known as the Irish Elk, lived in Europe as recently as 7,700 years ago and had the largest antlers of any known deer, either then or today. This leaf had been buried in the artist's collection for so long that she hasn't the slightest idea where she found it or what type of plant gave rise to its existence. Dessie thoroughly enjoys finding extinct species reincarnated within the confines of a leaf, feeling that perhaps Mother Nature is paying tribute in some small secret way to the magnificent lives that have come and gone upon her Earth. In terms of magnificence, this one is particularly so.
