Valeriana officinalis by Franz Eugen Köhler, 1897
Valerian is known for its odiferous root, but also as an effective sedative when taken internally as a tincture, tea, oil, or capsule.
Dried sticks cast in ancient bronze with a topaz cubic zircona stone. Silver prongs and chain.
I had a lot of fun with this one. it was my only big summer project that I did and actually finished. The background is our ‘yard’ at the awesome DRY (Meaning no running water) cabin that we lived in for the summer.
