EDITORS COMMENTS
This exquisite handcoloured woodblock engraving showcases two magnificent flowers of the lily family, the Madonna Lily, Lilium candidum, and the Orange Lily, Lilium bulbiferum. The Madonna Lily, also known as the White Madonna Lily or the Virgin's Lily, is a symbol of purity and chastity in Christianity, and its large, pristine white blooms with distinctive purple spots are a delight to behold. The Orange Lily, on the other hand, boasts vibrant orange flowers adorned with red freckles, adding a splash of warmth and vibrancy to any garden. This botanical illustration is taken from the Krauterbuch, or Herbal, by Adam Lonicer, published in Frankfurt in 1557. The work was a comprehensive compendium of medicinal plants, featuring detailed illustrations and descriptions in various languages, including Latin, Greek, French, Italian, German, and English. This particular print is believed to be from a 17th century pirate edition or atlas of the illustrations only, with the original captions preserved in the margins. The intricate details of the flowers are captured through the art of woodblock engraving, a technique that involves carving the design into a block of wood and then inking and printing the image onto paper. The delicate handcolouring adds an extra layer of depth and beauty to the already stunning illustrations. The Madonna Lily and the Orange Lily have been used in traditional medicine for various purposes throughout history. The Madonna Lily has been used to treat wounds, skin conditions, and heart ailments, while the Orange Lily has been used to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and promote relaxation. Today, these beautiful flowers continue to captivate us with their beauty and historical significance.
