In Europe, June in Croatian language is Lipanj: a month when Linden trees are blooming with a seductive heavy scent. I love that smell, love the tea made of it as well. It is considered a sacred tree in some cultures, probably for the variety of medical conditions it is used for to heal.
Tilia cordata is a Latin name for a Small-leaved Lime / Linden. Cordata, for the leaves are in the shape of the heart. When I made this box:
there was a significant part left in the shape of a heart. Immediately I had two ideas in my head. One of them is this heart: having vascular parts woodburned as if it was a leaf. Did you imagine you are a tree? A plant? Did you imagine ever to be so small to walk into the plant cell? I did. It is beautiful there... This green heart is 1.5" in size. Hope you like it!
