Artist's Description

Snake’s Head, Leper Lily, Guinea-hen Flower or Checkered Daffodil is endemic to Britain, France, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary and Romania. It is an endangered species in all of its natural habitats due to its rather exacting environmental requirements.

The checkered pattern of the flowers is a part of Croatia’s coats of arms.
In the Swedish province of Uppland its grows in large quantities, it is the official flower of the region, where the “Leper Lily” name is preserving the memory of medieval leper ghettos of Scandinavia, when leprosy was common in the region.
