This original oil painting features the King Protea flower blossom, which is the national flower of South Africa.

A realistic depiction of the King Protea Flower in wall art. The large white blossom sits in a nest of broad green leaves with a sky-blue background. This painting’s small size makes it perfect for small spaces or areas with limited space. Teresa Bernard, a fine artist who specializes in oil paintings, has signed this piece in the lower right-hand corner.

This small flower art piece is hand-painted on gallery-wrapped stretched canvas. Its scaled-down size is ideal for small spaces or confined areas. It doesn’t require a frame before display because the composition stretches around the sides of the canvas giving it a modern look. However, if you prefer to have it framed, The King Protea Flower painting will look great in your home or office, or anywhere it’s put out for viewing. This artwork includes a custom Certificate of Authenticity (COA).

Artist Comments

I love flowers! I like painting them too, especially closeup and bathed in the warm sunlight. I’m always on the lookout for a beautiful flower to paint, and the King Protea flower is certainly one that inspires me. Its large, beautiful blossom made it a perfect subject for this flower painting.

About The King Protea Flower

  • The King Protea (pronounced “prō – dē – a”) became the national flower of South Africa in 1976. This plant, named after Proteus, a Greek god who could change his form at will, is one of the oldest flowering plants on earth, dating back 300 million years. Many varieties of protea can be found in South Africa, Australia, Asia, and parts of South America.
  • King Proteas, whose blossom resembles an artichoke, is the largest member of the Protea family. They can grow as large as 3-4 feet tall with flowers 8-10 inches in diameter. The blossom has a substantial white fuzzy center with pointy pink or white petals surrounding the center, along with leathery green petals that cradle the large, heavy blossom and a thick stem that supports it.
