The original illustration “Sacro Nectare” is a digital painting created in 2021 by Imogen Smid. It was designed as the sigil of a Druidic Order I created for the character I play in a tabletop role playing game. The Order of Sacro Nectare (Sacred Nectar) is split into two halves: those that tend to the bees of the order and those that tend to the digitalis plants of the order.
Each bookmark is wrapped in cellophane to protect in from the elements during transit. It will be posted in a sturdy card envelope or in a card box if sent together with other bulkier item.

A bit extra on the original illustration:
The original idea behind the design is the connectivity of the four elements (earth, air, fire and water) and the honey bee’s place in this. The element of water has become rather obscured, but I used the wishy-washy blue colouring between the sun beams to represent the moisture coming from the sky to water the plants. The element of air is represented by the bee, the element of fire is represented by the sun and the element of earth is represented by the digitalis plant. I specifically picked the digitalis flower, or more commonly known as foxglove, as it is one of those two sided plants which can be used for both healing and as a deadly poison. This was an important element for the background story of the Druid Order Sacro Nectare.
