Sonora by American artist Robert Daughters shows a group of saguaro cactus (Carnegiea gigantea) which is one of the defining plants of the Sonoran Desert. These plants are large, tree-like columnar cacti that develop branches (or arms) as they age, although some never grow arms. These arms generally bend upward and can number over 25. We can see a sandstone formation in the background with a blue sky. This original hand- pulled serigraph is in excellent condition and is signed in pencil by the artist. A limited edition print number 214 out of 260 published by Aspen Mountain Graphics.
