Plant: Symphoricarpos albus (Common snowberry)
A man is revisiting snowberry shrubs with his a self-made mask. The snowberry is originally native to North America. It was introduced in 1817 to Europe as an ornamental plant and became extremely widespread on this continent. It can be found in many gardens and public green areas. The fruit and shrub itself are poisonous to humans and can cause vomiting. Native Americans used the plant to make medicine helping in the healing of wounds.
