  • Item #: 18020
Certified Organic Seed. Plump pods grow on short vines. This highly evolved goat seems to have moved beyond her appetite to a purely aesthetic appreciation for peas. How? Genetics. The first recorded awareness of heredity through breeding was biblical and involved Jacob's spotted goats. But it wasn't until Mendel picked up a paintbrush that the foundation for modern genetics was born. Mendel used his bristles to purposefully cross-pollinate peas. Later, Laxton built on Darwin's insights to improve garden peas. This painting brings this history to life with a contemporary brush stroke. Our kind of progress!
