One of his most important works is the Garibaldi Monument, which was erected in Nice. Subject: Figurine group / The Ideal Love (Zephyr and Flora) In Roman mythology, Flora is Goddess of Flowers and of the Season of Spring / her association with the spring gave her particular importance at the coming of springtime. Zephyr was the God of the West Wind (= one of the four seasonal Wind-Gods) as well as husband of Flora. The Meissen figurine group presented here shows the walking winged nude God Zephyr accompanied by Flora who has an elfin's wings: Both are embracing each other fondly, the Goddess of Spring puts her head at beloved man's shoulder. - The figurines are attached to flat base edged by golden painting.
