Description

 

In this work of mine, I take a detail from Botticelli's Primavera and place it in a more modern context

Flora is the goddess of spring, flowers and flowering. According to Ovid, Flora corresponds to the figure of Clori or Cloride. One spring day, while the girl is walking through the fields, Zefiro, the spring wind, sees her and falls madly in love with her. So he kidnaps her and joins her in marriage. As a demonstration of love, he allows Flora to reign over the flowers of the gardens and fields. For her part, the goddess offers men an innumerable variety of flowers and honey.
