In Greek mythology certain plants appear as men or gods, expressing through their stories philosophical questions considering nature, the eternal circles of life and death or the search of beauty and truth.Such story is the myth of Narcissus. It is an adventure of the gaze, as his inability to unite with his reflection on the water leads to his death and his subsequent metamorphosis into a flower. Narcissus represents a dual identity where the beauty of the living world coexists with the reality of death and the world of shadows.
