Horseradish is a visual pun - a spicy and cheeky juxtaposition of images that plays with a moment Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream in which the trickster character Puck transforms the actor-character Bottom by giving him a donkey's (jackass) head as a joke on Bottom's name. Puck had previously enchanted the queen of the Faeries, Titania, with a magical potion while she slept which would make her fall in love with an animal upon waking. When she does awake from dreaming, she finds Bottom, still with his donkey's head, singing. She falls immediately in love with him. The big heart behind Horseradishes head represents this love, while the hand-cuffed arms show how Titania and Bottom are helplessly bound by Puck's love magic until he releases them.
This clever visualization of a moment from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, is a complex play on words and ideas that makes for an unusual and completely unique graphic t-shirt.
