The Rafflesia is one of the world’s largest and rarest flowers, native to Southeast Asia. It is named after Sir Stamford Raffles, who led a British expedition to the region in 1818 and founded modern SIngapore in 1819. Our artists Izabella and Jamie were searching for a way to recreate the bumps on the flower’s petals. Their solution? Bubble wrap!
