Subject: [Aroid-l] Aroids in Art

>I was recently in an antiques store, where there was a whole
> section of art prints reproduced from old books, calendars,
> advertising, etc.  In the category, "Fairies and Flower
> People," there were prints of illustrated pages from
> 19th-century children's books.  I found one such page
> depicting lords-and-ladies (Arum maculatum), personified as
> (surprise, surprise) a lord and a lady.  Their clothing was
> made entirely of the spathes -- a flowing tunic for the
> lord, a hooded gown for the lady.  The lord also carried a
> spear which was really an inflorescence with protruding
> spadix, and another spadix formed the "feather" of his
> Robin-hood style hat.  Berry clusters dangled from their
> belts.  That is certainly a very clever way to depict
> aroids.
