Botanical Folktales
of Healing Series 2016

Each print 16" x 20"

This series illustrates folktales from around the world which focus on an herbal remedy. Despite although mankind uses botanical cures internationally, it was quite hard to find specific stories which detail the cures. These eight stories from Chinese, Tanzanian, Native American, Polish Chasidic, Scandinavian, Venezuelan, European and Hungarian, origins create a wonderful basis for the images.
