The monkey pod tree from The Contemporary Museum in Honolulu, Hawaii

From Wikipedia:

Known as the rain tree, monkey pod, cenizaro, saman, and cow tamarind, Samanea saman is a tall canopied tree with a large symmetrical crown. It is native to the mainland neotropics, from Mexico south to Peru and Brazil, but has been widely introduced to the Pacific islands, including Hawaii, where it is categorized as an invasive species.

In the summer of 2005, Shepard took part in the Contemporary Museum "Catalyst Artist in Residence" program. As part of his installation for this program, Shepard decorated the famous monkey pod tree on the grounds of the museum with the floral designs later seen in the Floral Pattern Print Set. The installation later became the model for the 3 monkey pod prints seen below.
