Poison Chalice

The chalice is a magical cup incorporating the plant forces within nature to cure or kill. It all depends on the dose! The chalice portrays a variety of magical poisonous plants recognised as the witches’ garden, including deadly nightshade, monkshood, thorn apple, hemlock, hellebore, foxglove and mandrake. The green man nymph at the base is the plants guardian, celebrating their power over life and death. The stem is a tree of life showing roots of wisdom. The symbols are of Saturn and Jupiter; Venus of woman and Mars of man and sextile in union. Because of their dark nature, Culpepper named the Solanaceae and Umbelliferae toxic plant families as the Saturnian herbs. The goblet bears magical qualities and, used wisely, is aimed to bring wisdom and good fortune to its owner. On the rim of the cup are symbols of spring, summer, autumn, winter with Jupiter, the planet of luck and joviality. The goblet yields to a celebration of life, death and rebirth. It is made from cold cast resin, handpainted in a bronze finish and it measures 22cms in height.
