Cuban Mariposa Pattern

Cuban Mariposa Pattern print creating using the individual ingredients of my artwork called A Mojito Made Me Do It. Illustration featuring: limes, mint and White Ginger flowers commonly known as Mariposa (butterfly in Spanish). Its scientific name Hedychium Coronarium, from the family of the Zingiberaceas, native to Vietnam, became a symbol of Cuban flora because Cuban women used it to smuggle messages to the battlefield during the liberation wars of the 19th century. Its perfume is exquisite.
