This tropical panda celebrates the diversity of nature in Central America. According to the artist, "The imagery was inspired by a trip to Belize, a place I felt was paradise. This is a playful panda that dreams of paradise and becomes her dreams. ... Rather than wearing a tropical shirt, she is so at one with her environment that she has become tropical. Her body has become a jungle populated by birds, lizards and monkeys, filled with vines and flowers."
