Sinaw (Alchemilla)(129 views)
Description: A hand-colored copperplate engraving from Germany showing a frontal view of Alchemilla, a herbaceous perennial plant that can be used as an astringent. Although printed in 1719, the composition is reminiscent of the botanical prints of Basilius Besler from his masterwork "Hortus Eysttensis," first published in 1613. The elaborate background reflects the emergence of European landscape painting and the importance of herbs in culinary culture, alchemy, and medicine at that time.
