Three colour, hand-pulled silkscreen print on 70lb French Paper.

 

Limited edition of 8.

 

Papaver somniferum contains the opiate alkaloids morphene and codeine, which unlike Belladonna, Datura, and Mandrake, cause the
intoxicated to fall into a peacefull, dreamlike state. It is possible that Papaver somniferum was included in flying ointment recipes in order to counteract paranoia and other unpleasant side effects caused by hallucinogenic plants.
