(Aristolochia littoralis ) (Aristoclea) (Aristocleia)- Floral Textile

Aristolochia littoralis 

Aristoclea (also Aristocleia), (flourished 6th century B.C.) was a Greek priestess at Delphi in Ancient Greece. She was cited by many ancient writers as a tutor of the philosopher and mathematician Pythagoras (ca.580 B.C - 500 B.C.).
Porphyry of Tyre (233 - 306) wrote:
" 41. Such things taught he, though advising above all things to speak the truth, for this alone deifies men. For as he had learned from the Magi, who call God Oremasdes, God's body is light, and his soul is truth. He taught much else, which he claimed to have learned from Aristoclea at Delphi."

excerpt from film, "The Brothers Bloom"

Bloom explains his brother Stephen to a lovely young woman:
"He writes his cons the way Russians write novels, with thematic arcs and embedded symbolism and shit. And he wrote me as the vulnerable anti-hero; and that's why you think you want to kiss me. Its a con."
