Harvard's Glass Flowers

According to the website, The Harvard Glass Flowers exhibit is a " unique collection of over 3,000 models was created by glass artisans Leopold Blaschka and his son, Rudolph. The commission began in 1886, continued for five decades, and the collection represents more than 830 plant species."
