Bocca Baciata with dried roses and marigolds

I love Rossetti’s paintings and have previously made an attempt at Fair Rosamund in dried flowers. In the painting of Bocca Baciata (“Mouth that has been kissed”) from 1859, the lady is adorned with a white rose for innocence, marigolds for grief, and there is also an apple in the bottom right hand corner, signifying temptation. So that makes for an intriguing story!
