“Oma Forest is a work of art created by Agustin Ibarrola, a Basque sculptor and painter. The work is located in a forest near Kortezubi (Bizkaia, Basque Country), in the natural reserve of Urdaibai. It is also known as the ‘painted forest’.
Today I bring you a botanical illustration inspired art about mandrakes. I really like special plants which connected with interesting superstitions and beliefs. According to the legend, when the mandrake root is dug up it screams and kills all who hear it.
