Artist's Description

Water Chestnut and Water Caltrop are to two species of the genus Trapa – T. natans and T. bicornis distinguishable easily by the shape of the hard, spiny fruits shown at my painting too.

The submerged part may reach a length up to 5 meters. Spreads by detached rosettes and fruits floating to another habitats.

Seeds were consumed by even prehistoric man; water Chestnut is in cultivation in China for at least 3.000 years.
