Join World History Encyclopedia as they chat with Flora of Flaroh Illustration who creates art based on the ancient world, artefacts and myths. Flora tells us all about her process in creating her pieces that echo the aesthetics of a time long past, how she ended up as a freelance artist and what it's been like working in a museum. Hear all about her inspirations which range from the Homeric epics the Iliad and the Odyssey, to archaeological artefacts like Greek Pottery and architectural remains such as the Caryatids, Hadrian's Wall and the Temple of Poseidon.
