The goddess Flora is the flower-crowned female figure in a floral-patterned dress who is scattering flowers, collected in the folds of her gown. In Roman mythology, Flora was the goddess of flowers and the spring. She was a fertility goddess and was popular for her association with spring. Since 240 BC the Romans celebrated the Floralia (April 28 – May 3) which symbolized the renewal of life, drinking, and flowers. In the painting there are five hundred identified plant species about 190 of which are different flowers.
Tomorrow, Zephyrus and Chloris.
