Atropos’ Belladonna ; the mystery and magic of nightshade

~The Story of “Belladonna” ~
Belladonna has a long and varied history throughout the millennia.

She is not just a “witchy” toxic herb. The nightshades have been found in various cultures for thousands of years as a weapon, medicine, and tool of magick.

The heart of many cultures’ most important decisions have long relied on women’s intuition and plant medicine.

Atropa Belladonna ; named after the Greek fate Atropos and her shears that snipped the thread of life. This potent plant contains poisonous alkaloids and is to be respected from a distance.

The nightshades have played hugely impactful roles in the development of the western world. Ancient people added nightshades to grain brewing practices and religious cult ritual consumption.

The erasure and of both in modern western culture is telling. Yet I have a deep knowing in my bones, a knowing that its reemergence is imminent and crucial to our healing.

Visit this link to add a print to your collection. 

Along with your print, you will receive a fact sheet on Atropa belladonna.

Numbered, titled, and signed, only 13 prints were made in this particular silver metallic ink on black paper color variation.

Since this is a hand pulled print, no two prints will ever be identical.
As each print is inked, burnished, and pulled by hand, it will have slight irregularities and you may not receive a print exactly like the one pictured. This is what makes each print a unique collector’s piece.
It comes on a white backing in a clear cellophane bag, shipped in a cardboard mailer box.

I hope that her presence in your space will remind you of your own powers.

May you see your own strength, beauty, and (dangerous) powers to connect to the greater mysteries. As a result of that connection, we also see the brevity of our time here on the physical plane.

Seeing our fragile state allows us to be mindful of our thread and the impending cut.
