This collection is at the Harvard Museum at Boston. The entire collection was commissioned by a magnanimous rich lady who was amazed by the sample produced by the artists Leopold and Rudolph Blaschka. I must thank my chickappa Ananthramu for planning to take us here. for if not for him, this moment of wonder and hope for me, would not have happened.
