A life size portrayal of a tiny posy made of wild flowers Hearts Ease and Shepherds Purse tied with grass. Part of my ongoing project ‘Votive Offerings’ which began as a series of portrayals of wild flower posies made and left around Scotland and further afield. It has evolved to include fruit and vegetable flowers and herbalist plants. The project explores the motif and act of making the posy, the turning of something ephemeral into something permanent, the notion of a gift or a prayer.
