THE GOULANDRIS NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM THANKS HEALTHCARE WORKERS AND FRONTLINE STAFF FOR THEIR EFFORTS!
Today from Athens, Greece, we join the museum community (#MuseumsThankHealthHeroes) to thank all the doctors, nurses, medical personnel, hospital maintenance workers and all who are on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis. We are sharing this painting of Niki Goulandris, co-founder of the Goulandris Natural History Museum and well known botanical painter, as a kind offering. The particular plant is Colchicum bivonae Guss. Species of Colchicum are the natural source of the alkaloid colchicine, known since antiquity for its therapeutical properties. Colchicine was recently studied as a treatment for COVID-19 complications. Photo: Colchicum bivonae Guss painted by Niki Goulandri
