Absinth – named after the drink Absinthe, a distilled, highly alcoholic anise-flavored spirit derived from herbs, including the flowers and leaves of the herb Artemisia absinthium.
Absinthe is typically of a natural green color but is also produced in both clear and artificially colored styles. It is often called “the Green Fairy.”
Verte is derived from the type of absinthe most commonly consumed in the 19th century and is what is generally thought of as absinthe.
It is also french for “green”
Our Absinthe here (on the left) also goes by the name “green fairy” and often artificially colours her hair, though she tends to stick with green… She is also highly spirited and enjoys many old world treasures…
In this piece Absinthe is portrayed on a day out at the gallery for freaks and trippas, a place she frequents often, and is owned and managed by one of her many friends.
