Acrylic on Board, 600x500
SKOPAS (395-350 BC) was a Greek architect and sculptor of the late classical period.
The term ‘maenads’ refers to women in mythology who resisted the worship of Dionysus and were driven mad by him, forced against their will to participate in often horrific rites. These women were mythologized as the ‘madwomen’ dancing in a state of ecstatic frenzy through a combination of dancing and intoxication.

"Bust Of Flora" 2006

My interpretation of the 1510s Bust of Flora by Leonardo Da Vinci in Berlin that had a lasting effect on me after I viewed it in person.
Flora represents the classical goddess of Flowers and the Spring. Her name is derived from the Latin word ‘flos’ which means ‘flower’
