A beautiful composition, with the textures (glossy leaves, lemons, wine bottle, plastic stopper, ceramic bowl) very evident. As for the title, I could say, “What’s he doing there?” as in Britain as in some countries of Orthodox heritage, Basil can be a male forename (made famous in Britain by the comic character Basil Fawlty, played by John Cleese). He would cause havoc in your kitchen.

Omg, this is a great explanation! I always ask myself how much is lost in translation, but seems this time I’ve gained 😉 Will google Mr Basil/ John Cheese. Digging further, Basilisk is dragon in folk tales in some of Germanic countries, but in Slovenia we are more avare of basil as a herb, as we are partly Adriatic/Mediterranean country with ancient connections with old Roman empire…hm have to read some more about basil, for now I shall have a glass of vine 😉
