Banana - Lakatan, Philippines. Miriam Besa 1945
Banana lakatan is a variety of sweet, smooth, textured banana grown in the Philippines. It’s fruit is more slender and longer than the other common varieties. You eat it ripe right from the tree.
The luxuriant vegetation invades a large part of the canvas, like a tapestry with a tropical theme. An abundance of banana leaves, broad and some damaged, rustle in the quiet air, painted in the full spectrum of greens and browns introduces a tumultous animation into the composition. The heart of the banana bravely hangs with its weight and the scarlet blooms give rise to golden fingers of sweet ripe fruit. Butterflies attracted to the heart of the banana give you a playful experience adding interest and grace.
The rustic background echoes the state of the damaged leaves and a serene stillness to the atmosphere. The main tree is bent with the weight of its fruits. The vegetation on the foreground with sparkling purples, greens and yellow pivots your attention back to the center of the canvas
