A botanical model of a wheat grain and sprout

A botanical model of a wheat grain and sprout made of painted plaster with metal hooks attached to the outside. The wheat grain is beige in colour and opens down the middle to show its interior structure. One side has also been peeled back in sections to show the various layers while the other side is also hinged, enabling it to be opened again. Also accompanying the wheat grain is a model of a seed sprout, which is green and white in colour with roots and bristles attached.
