A dash of this, a dash of that… This detailed illustration gives us a glimpse into an ancient apothecary. Three women chemists are creating potions and medicinal remedies. Ginger jars filled with herbs from faraway lands, a mortar and pestle set, petite vials carefully stored on shelves, and a sleeping cat make this image intriguing. Detailed illustration by the French artist Margaux Samson Abadie.
Margaux Samson Abadie, aka Nano Février, lives in a small coastal town in the west of France. "My work is rooted in nature, childhood memories, and folklore. I am passionate about subjects such as ecology and slow living, and I strive to translate nature's magic into my artwork. I like to relax by petting my cats, listening to Dream Pop, and sipping spruce sprout tea."
For centuries, our wisdom’s grown;
Ancient knowledge, now our own:
Cures derived from leaf and root!
All of a plant may yet bear fruit!
