Hortus Cliffortianus – Wikipedia

A young god Apollo, with the head of Linnaeus, steps forward, bringing light in horyus left hand and with his right hand casting aside the shroud of darkness around the goddess. Underfoot he tramples the dragon of falsehood, a reference to the counterfeit Hydra at Hamburg exposed as a fraud by Linnaeus while on his way to Holland. Frontispies door Jan Wandelaar van Linnaeus, C.

De gravure toont Moeder Aarde, gezeten op een leeuw en een leeuwin, de sleutels tot de tuin in haar hand. Aan haar voeten een pot met Cliffortia en een plattegrond van de tuin van de Hartekamp. Op een hoog voetstuk staat een buste die mogelijk George Clifford voorstelt. Aan de rechterzijde zien we een bananenplant met bloemen en vruchten, en een jonge god Apollo, met het hoofd van Linnaeus, die in zijn linkerhand licht brengt en met zijn rechterhand de sluiers der duisternis afwerpt van de godin.

Met zijn voeten vertrapt hij de draak der onwaarheid, een verwijzing naar de nagemaakte Hydra in Hamburg die hij op zijn reis naar Holland als bedrog had ontmaskerd.
