Flora by ian-marke
Flora was the Roman goddess of flowers, or of the flowering of plants. I originally called this painting La mort de Flore (The death of Flora). Flora was originally worshipped as the goddess of seeds and fruit. Later, she became the goddess of all that flowers.When was Flora first worshipped? We know that her festival the Floralia, was introduced to Rome around 200 BC. But when was Flora last worshipped, was last taken seriously?
