Witches Brew | Snake on the Left

Regular price $85.00 $0.00

In January, when all the holiday festivities are over, and it's dreary, with nary a snowflake in sight, I want to dance around a cauldron, calling upon the skies to snow us all in. Because that's what women do, right? We feed chickens and snakes to the flames in order to influence the elements with our nefarious ways, as evidenced in this German woodcut from the Fifteenth Century, entitled "The Witches' Cauldron."

There are several different versions of this art; I first discovered this particular version in the delightful (and horrifying) book, "Witches: History of a Persecution," by Nigel Cawthorne.  

Single-strand, hand embroidery on cream cotton in a 7x9 inch wooden frame. The art itself measures 4.5 x 6.5 inches.

Ready to ship within two business days.
