President Donald Trump gave Pope Francis a sculpture by Florida-based artist Geoffrey C. Smith, according to The White House.
The bronze sculpture that Smith called "Rising Above" is inspired on the artists' sighting of the flower in the Florida Everglades.
Smith, a wildlife sculptor and photographer, has a studio and a gallery in Stuart. President George Bush is a fan of his work.
The White House reported Trump also gave Pope Francis writings by Martin Luther King, Jr.
