La fleur du marécage, une tête. humaine et triste (1885) is a drawing by French artist Odilon Redon. It depicts the head of a Pierrot, suspended from a branch of a plant.

Marécage is French for swamp, so the title translates as Swamp flower, a head. Human and sad.

It is from the set Hommage à Goya.

The engraving is is reminiscent of the fantastic plants of Edward Lear.
