This is an archival PRINT of an original painting by artist Belinda Joynes.

The original painting was based on the fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen "Mother Elder":

"A little boy catches a cold and while his Mother is making some Elderberry Tea to warm him up, a neighbour comes to tell him a story. The boy falls asleep while listening to the old man telling his tale and he dreams/hallucinates that an elderberry tree is growing out of the teapot. Mother Elderberry appears and tells him a story of him growing up, marrying his sweet heart, and getting old. The tree and the figures on the skirt of her dress presents the boys future family tree and the many children and grandchildren that Mother Elderberry foretells."
