“A garland of flowers” is the title that Jan Davidsz. de Heem gave to this oil paint on canvas, now in the collection of The Wilson Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum. It is dated 1669–1679 [1].

In the foreground to the right a whitish snail may be seen with a dextral shell. Details are not enough to be conclusive, but it might be the same species as seen in another painting from the artist (here).
