“There was a time when one might have seen a sign in this national scot emblem made woman, a mandragora freeing herself of the flower bed she has her roots in, while a rising sun — its light the likes of which one only finds in old polaroïds from the 70s — bathes the surrounding loch…”
Print of “L’Échappée de la Mandragore” (“The Mandragora’s Escape”), a watercolour illustration by messalyn painted in 2014. Important note : this is a reproduction print, not the original!
The illustration is reproduced on a A4-sized paper (21 x 29.7 cm = roughly 8¼ × 12 inches), so it is smaller in size than the original. It features 1 cm (⅜ inch) margins to allow for the artist signature and numerotation and ease the framing process. The paper — Couché demi-mat in 300g — is smooth, almost bristol-like.
