YES, THESE ARE REAL LEAVES!
Well, how do you make them look like this? I have perfected a special process to selectively dissolve the skin from the leaf while exposing the beautiful vascular structure underneath (aka: The Skeleton). The Skeleton is a very tough natural plant fiber. While the leaves may appear delicate, they are quite flexible and preserved to stay that way. They will not dry out or become brittle with time. They will flex around within the frame unharmed and can easily handle shipping. The leaves have been re-tinted and will not fade.
