  Aroids in Art

I went to an art fair over the weekend and found a woman using
Arisaema in her art. Check out: http://www.vermontbotanical.com

The plants were dried at very high heat, then freeze-dried, a
process that holds the color true. She has a "thing" for fiddleheads
of ferns and incorporated them into almost of her Arisaema art
which was a bit irritating to see (botanically incorrect) but, hey, it's
art, and she's the artist, and the work is interesting.

Has anyone else ever seen dried plants (aroids) or know of a
process that holds true natural colors intact?
