The Spirit of Yarrow – A4/A3 size

Museum Quality Fine Art Fairytale print on Bamboo Paper.

“…Herb of the Warrior. Jeanne d’Arc among the wild plants.

It was on that hot summerday, bumblebees moved slowly through the blistering field of flowers. Suddenly… out of nowhere, with your thousands of white and pale pink rosey flowers and army green petals like arrows, you knocked me down.

I immediately surrendered and quite frankly you didn’t really leave me with a choice, did you?

Your spicy herbal scent caught me offguard. You looked quite innocent and sweet. A lovely floral perfume would suit you better… but I couldn’t be more wrong.

I looked at you with a deep frown, like an angry and rebellious little girl, exploring her boundaries with her chubby little arms steadfastly crossed like a shield. You obviously hit me in the right spot.

You are a wound healer. You heal wounds of the soul made by bittersweet love. Because sometimes it’s just enough, a little too much for the strong among us… when we’ve fought enough and you help our weary soldier heart to heal again. You taught me the craft of nourishing boundary making.
As poetic as your soft flowers, so strong are your dark green leaves as arrows, not to mention your resilient roots. A barren parched earth is no worthy enemy of yours.

As Aphrodite represents the Goddess of Love and War at once, so are you the most romantic and combative herb I know.

Oh Yarrow. Who would have known that love could be such a battlefield…”

I work together with a Dutch local art printer. This professional print studio produces museum-quality fine art prints on Hahnemuhle Fine Art paper and archival inks. Please note that the actual print might look slightly different from what you see on your computer screen, colors may vary. I photograph all Spirits and beings in daylight, but keep in mind the colors can be slightly different once you receive the print. Handle with Care. When taking your print out of the package it might be rolled up (A2 size) do not be temped to roll it the other way since it might crease the paper. Instead leave it on a flat clean surface and it will flatten itself without you have to do anything. If framing your print please do so with care. Prints printed with a lot of black ink can be damaged more easily when touched with fingertips, and I happen to use a lot of dark colors. Make sure you have clean hands or wear gloves.
