Makasin -  Cypripedium parviflorum by Suzanne Belair
  Makasin  (2015)
Subject: Cypripedium parviflorum
Dimensions (inches): 24 x 30
Medium: Oil
Description: It represents a small indigenous orchid (Cypripedium parviflorum) that grows in Quebec's rich wooden areas and is very strong.

Here are a few interesting facts taken from the book "La Flore Laurentienne" :

"Rhizomes or wood stocks of this specie, have been harvested by herbalists and natives for medicinal purposes. They contain oils, resins and tannins. Its infusion or extracts are nervous stimulants. These products are not very much in use now. The labellum is so greatly puffed up that it resists pressure, like an inflated bladder would. The wilting always begins with the appearance of a transparent plate located at the bottom of the posterior part. The magnificent beauty of the specie resides in the rich green of its stem and leaves, the bright gold of its flowers and the floating spiral of the lateral sepals."

Because of its shape, it is also called the Yellow lady's slipper, moccasin flower or hairy yellow ladyslipper .
