All the works by Mario Raciti that have the title "The Flowers of the Deep" are inspired by the Greek myth that deals with the myth of Demeter and his daughter Persephone. In Raciti's biography there is the paragraph that tells this myth. In our case, on a dirty white background, Hades is a black spot in the lower middle and always from below depart the stems that carry on top the plum-colored flowers. Two flashy spots, one red and the other light brown represent the maturation of some kind of cereal, since Demeter is the goddess of the corn and fertility of the earth.
