3 June 2015, the feet of the Flora Maggiore appeared in front of the
southern entrance of the Cologne Cathedral. The foot size of the supporting
leg was 24 meters in length. The proportion to the body length corresponds
exactly with the height of the Cologne Cathedral. Flora Maggiore is a
replica of the Roman statue from the 2nd century AD from the National
Archaeological Museum of Naples. In this virtual project the Flora was
created to 153.38 meters in the network to jpg. A Flower Goddess in Dom-size
spot. The pair of feet of the Flora Maggiore was transferred with chalk in
original size on the plating in front of the cathedral. The footprints were
positioned that way the pillar came to stand directly on the Meridian
previously defined. This meridian extends through the side entrance and the
sacred center of the building and continues over the earth. That same day
you could see Flora’s foot outlines below on the square from the
observation deck of the Cologne Cathedral in 97.25 meters and thus on the
chest of flora. The work should get a momentum during the event and the
following day, because at the same time was the space prepared for the cath.
Holiday Corpus. Exactly at this place the Mass and subsequent procession
were committed under the leadership of the Archbishop of Cologne. In front
of the page Portal the chancel was built with the centrally aligned altar
just at the feet of the Flora Maggiore on the meridian. In addition, they
had created an entrance hall by barricades with rows of chairs for the
dignitaries and invited believers, which in turn superimposed a part of a
foot of Flora. Laterally to the seating had been installed a grandstand for
a huge children's choir. On the axis at the other end of the square - in the
back of Flora - the media built on to broadcast the event. Before everything
took its course, I drew vigorously the lines of footprints with chalk again.
Meanwhile, the children's choir began to match vocal scale consequences.
Here something happened that made me believe in miracles again immediately
... out loud resounding vocal exercises I believed to hear from the
well-intentioned Gloria a Floria - in all ups and downs of the tone scales.
Everything took its course, the place was filled with people who entered and
dissembled the feet of flora and finally ceded to the procession through the
drum rhythm in the video is the eightfold acceleration of the bells of
Cologne in the cathedral.
