The sunflower (Helianthus annuus) is an annual plant native to the Americas. It possesses a large flowering head, and its name is derived from the flower's shape and image, which is often used to capture the sun. The plant has a rough, hairy stem, broad, coarsely toothed, rough leaves, and circular flower heads. The heads consist of many individual flowers which mature into seeds, often in the hundreds, on a receptacle base. From the Americas, sunflower seeds were brought to Europe in the 16th century, where, along with sunflower oil, they became a widespread cooking ingredient.

Materials: The flowers made of hand patinated bronze with gold leaf and druse stones in the center. The wires are 925 silver.
