Povestea Rostopascai/ The legend of Celandine

Pe aceasta planta galbuie si discreta a imortalizat-o chiar si Albrecht Durer in picturile lui, din recunostinta pentru vindecarea unei boli de ficat de care suferea. Vechii romani ii spuneau "Chelidonium", adica "Darul Cerului", iar puterea ei vindecatoare o asemanau puterii soarelui. Mai tarziu, alchimistii au incercat sa o transforme in aur, asa de impresionati au fost de culoarea portocalie a laptelui de rostopasca.

This discrete yellow flower was painted by Albrecht Durer himself, as an offering for curing him of a liver disease. The Romans named it "Chelidonium", which means "Gift of the sky", and they considered it as powerful as the sun. Later, alchemists tried to transform it into gold, impressed by its orange milk.
