Saturnus blank handmade journal
This product is currently sold out.
Created as a devotional to Saturn, an agricultural deity whose rulership falls over the aspects of karma, responsibility, discipline, and limitations, and who later absorbed the archetype of the death figure. It is the aspects of limitations and death that garner him rulership over poisonous plants, known to be herbs of the underworld. The dualistic nature of poisonous plants find a valuable medicine at one end and a deadly poison at the other. These attributes teeter on a thin line, where awareness of the plants’ limitations is key to unlocking their volatile qualities.
Saturnus is original artwork drawn and screen printed by Adrienne Rozzi. The back of the journal features another work by Rozzi entitled Night Ritual.
