Quetzlcoatl Returns (1997)
Flora did some mind-bending works in the 1990s — more curiously sinister than his work in the 1980s (IMHO). Quetzlcoatl [sic] Returns is an acrylic on stretched canvas (15" x 30") rendered within a year of the artist's death. Flora, who lived in Mexico in 1950-1951, was a longtime enthusiast of Latin American folkways.
