An original pencil drawing of a male toad, surrounded by a Celtic art style border formed from dandelions, by Marjory Tait of Highland Celtic Art.
An idea arising from seeing toadspawn and dandelions on an early morning walk.
Without water there is no life, so not surprisingly water has been considered sacred, and the creatures that live in it to be guardians, messengers of the blessing of rain, and representatives of the spirit of life. Toads return to the place of their birth to spawn again.
Considered a masculine plant in astrology, the dandelion in flower language represents love. The blooms open and close with sunset and sunrise, so it is associated with time, both in bloom and in seed, as a ‘fairy clock’. As it grows, the dandelion changes the environment around it, to allow other more delicate plants to flourish and nourish life, thereby creating community. A true king amongst plants.
To be sold with Matilda the Dandelion Queen only. The King and Queen need to stay together as pair. The listed price is for the pair.
