Artist's Description

This is my version of a tree of Hungarian folklore — a combination of the égig érő fa (World Tree), and the golden apple tree of faeries.
The Sun and Moon are among the branches of the tree, while among the tree’s roots lies the Underworld. The tree has seven large branches, the number seven being significant magically.

The golden apples are eaten by Faeries for breakfast alongside a bowl of porridge and a glass of hot chocolate in a cute old folktale.
White rowan berries are at the bottom of the illuminated manuscript-inspired frame. Rowan has had many uses in European mythology and folklore.
