Linoblock print of a group of Dracaena draco also called Dragon Trees.
The name of these beautiful succulent trees comes from the Greek Hercules myth. One of Hercules' labours was to bring back three golden apples from the garden of the Hesperides, which was guarded by the hundred headed dragon Landon.When Hercules killed the dragon his blood flowed out all over the land and wherever it went, dragon trees sprouted.
The sap of the tree is red - hence - 'dragon's blood'.

I cut all of my blocks by hand and each print is hand printed individually using a bamboo ladle. Due to the hand printing process there are small variations from print to print. Each relief print is printed on archival cream coloured BFK Rives paper using lightfast Daniel Smith inks.
I do combine shipping on multiple purchases.
This print will be sandwiched in cardboard which is tucked into a bubble mailer for safe transport.
