Artichoke Hearts
Acrylic on Canvas
24" x 24"

Artichokes were seen in ancient Egyptian writings as a symbol of fertility and sacrifice. Ancient Greeks and Romans used this plant as a digestive aid. Reportedly in 16th century Europe, the artichoke was favored as a food by royalty. It's not even considered a vegetable. It's part of the sunflower family. Who knew?
