Artist's Description

The closest wild relative of cultivated lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.), it grows throughout the temperate regions of all major continents.
Pythagoreans called the prickly lettuce eunuch because it caused urination and relaxed sexual desire.
In Greek mythology, Aphrodite have laid Adonis in a lettuce bed, leading to the vegetable’s association with food for the dead.
