Herbes de Provence : Basilic

I just finished another digital wall art Herbes de Provence "Basilic".

If you notice I made some adjustments from my previous work "Herbes de Provence: Lavande".


I read online that in Romania, a girl offers a sprig of basil to a boy as a form of engagement, while in ancient Greek, basil is a symbol of hatred. Other cultures uses it is a symbol for love, holiness, purity, and sanctity.

It was also believed that Salome hid the head of John the Baptist in a pot of basil to cover the decomposition odor.

wiseGeek says basil oil can repel houseflies.

Interesting.

I just can't wait till I can print it on canvas and hang them in our kitchen! Now I have three more to go.

What's your favorite use of basil?

    Thank you for your sweet comment. I love discovering new (to me) blogs. I hope you share your Basil print once it's on canvas and hanging in your kitchen. Thank you for sharing all those interesting traditions and beliefs.

  3. What a beautiful piece! I love herbs, and really love your idea of putting this on canvas. How will you transfer it to the canvas? Basil is one of my favorite herbs. We have a big post growing on our deck, and I just made a big batch of pesto the other day!!
