Sweet Papaya Leaf
$91.20 – $2,392.00
Water is life, they say, and the glistening droplets cradled on this papaya leaf? It’s as if we can see the promise of a bright future in them… for all of us.
Sunlight captured in raindrops, worlds within worlds. We wonder if tiny lifeforms are swimming in each little globe, but we haven’t had a microscope at home in decades.
Still, a child’s eyes can see it. Veins and tributaries pump enough nutrition to push a 30-foot tree out of each of the hundred seeds found in a single breakfast fruit. An older child might notice their own veins and make the connection.
Water is life, in all its many forms, along with sunlight and the nourishing earth.
