Marble sculpture representing the goddess Flora (or Chloris in Greek mythology). Florence, Renaissance, 16th century.
Sister of Apollo and Artemis, goddess of flowers and spring, Flore is represented as a feminine figure, standing, loosely hip. The mid-body draped jacket strips off a fairly small torso. In his left hand a bouquet of flowers. The hair, separated by a median part and organized in flexible undulations, is retained by a bun.
The statue has strong affinities with the classical sculptures that decorated the Renaissance gardens. The Renaissance in Italy also inspired a gardening revolution. The Renaissance garden will use many statues, bas-reliefs, marble decorations to the point of becoming an open-air museum.
The sculpture is in very good condition. Old restorations and small signs of time.
