The Rose Banksia, or Banksia laricina, is represented by this abstraction, beginning with seeds that are nurtured as a plant on sandy soils in a sunny position, hence the sun. From June to March, there is no flowering and what we see is a hard, rigid wood-like structure that from April to July flowers and blooms into a beautiful flower with prominent follicles. Moving on, the trees represent the low woodland where this shrub grows and the Moore River, the place where it is restricted to and grows endemic to parts of Australia. Bush fires may decimate the shrub as they are sensitive, relying on seeds to regenerate, and hence, the process commences again as a life-death cycle.
