Painting - Watercolor On Cold Compress Paper
There are several possible derivations of the name. One of the most common relates to the story of the youth of Greek mythology named Narcissus, who became so obsessed with his own reflection as he knelt and gazed into a pool of water that he fell into the water and drowned. In some variations, he died of starvation and thirst from sitting by the edge of the pool, transfixed by his own reflection. In both versions, the Narcissus plant sprang from where he died. Pliny wrote that the plant was named instead for its narcotic properties (ναρκάω narkao, "I grow numb" in Greek.
