The Far Woods Print - Plants Take Care of Us
We are so delighted to be stocking these gorgeous prints from Nina Montenegro of the Far Woods.
This image, "Plants Take Care of Us" features Plantain. This piece was inspired by the exquisite book, “Braiding Sweetgrass,” in which author Robin Wall Kimmerer writes that “in some Native languages the term for plants translates to ‘those who take care of us.’” “Plants were here first and have had a long time to figure things out,” Kimmerer says. “They live both above and below ground and hold the earth in place. Plants know how to make food from light and water. Not only do they feed themselves but they make enough to sustain the lives of all the rest of us. Plants are providers for the rest of the community and exemplify the virtue of generosity, always offering food.” Not only do they offer food, but also gifts of healing medicine, shelter, comfort, nostalgia. This print is an homage to these gifts, a reminder that plants are our family-- and they take care of us like family.
