- FLORA -

Flora (in Greek Chloris) is the goddess of flowers. Her festivity was characterised by debauchery (NL: losbandigheid). The Greek flower goddess Chloris was married to Zephyrus, the western wind bringing the spring (once, Ford produced a car called Zephyrus). Zephyrus procreated flowers with her. Ovidius describes Flora's garden, full with flowers, a gift from Zephyrus. Poussin, lets her dance in the garden light-footed, throwing flowers around. Around her one can see mythological figures, that have tyransformed into a flower after their death: for example Clythia who turned into a sun-flower. (Source: Hall, 1993, p. 108)
