Voynich Meadow Part 5: Thistle
This work was inspired and adapted from the "Voynich Manuscript," a 15th century codex hand-written in an unknown writing system, which may have been composed in Northern Italy during the Italian Renaissance. The mystery of the meaning and origin of the manuscript has excited the popular imagination, making the manuscript the subject of novels and speculation.
The thistle is actually part of the sunflower family, and is the national symbol for Scotland. To the Celts, the thistle represented bravery, devotion, durability, strength, and determination. Just try to pick one up! Its emerald hue symbolizes balance between head and heart. Green is the color of life, nature, and balance. Purple is the color of love, protection, sacrifice, and nobility. Inwardly, the thistle unites these attributes towards higher consciousness and enlightenment.
Offered in precision handcraft gold leaf, silver leaf, or white framing.
