The Golden Bough A3 Textile Archive Print - edition of 50
This beautiful limited edition print of a Willow weeping over a pond of water lillies comes from a textile archive.
An enchanting depiction of the Willow, this delicate 1925 design has strong links to both Greek, Celtic and Roman mythology. Greek & Celtic traditions cherished the Willow for its close association with water, the moon and the Goddess Hecate. The Willow Tree was believed to enhance psychic abilities and to offer deep insights, while its strength and flexibility were seen as a metaphor for the path of the spiritual. In Roman mythology, it was the Golden Bough, a tree branch with golden leaves, that enabled the Trojan hero, Aeneas to travel through the underworld safely.
This screenprint has been lovingly restored and digitally reproduced from the original design. It has been made using ethically sourced materials. Printed in the UK on bamboo paper made from 90% sustainable bamboo fibres and 10% cotton rag: environmentally friendly paper with a natural look, giving the print a lightly textured and sensual feel.
Dimensions: this print is A3 size (297 x 420 mm). Unnumbered edition of 50.
