Fine art print.
Features Opium, Red, Yellow and Violet Horned Poppies.
Poppies have long been used as a symbol of sleep, peace, and death: sleep because of the opium extracted from them, and death because of the common blood-red color of the red poppy in particular. In Greek and Roman myths, poppies were used as offerings to the dead.
Based on a botanical lithograph made in the late 1850s by Anne Pratt, which we have carefully restored and enhanced.
