The Ghinko – A Symbol of Life Everlasting



On a recent trip to Chicago I took some time to visit the Frank Lloyd Wright House and Museum in Oak Park.  I was inspired by his use of light and image.

Wright created leaded glass designs for doors, skylights, back-lit ceiling panels, table lamps, and wall sconces as well as for windows.




I have decided to use the Ghinko in my homage to Wright.  The Ghinko is unique to the plant world in that it has remained virtually unchanged for over 270 million years.  What better symbol for life in the past, the present and the future?
