Flora caressed by Zephyr

This series, "Flora" is inspired by François Gérard's painting (1770-1837) : "Flora caressed by Zéphyr". According to Ovid, the Latin poet, Zephyr, son of Aeolus, master of the wind, abducts Flora, marries her and offers her the kingdom of flowers. Flora is a goddess who invites us to enjoy life and youth. But its main role is to protect the flowering of cereals and fruit trees.
