Cyprus and Aphrodite

Cyprus is birthplace of Aphrodite, goddess of love.

"Aphrodite's island, tormented Cyprus, with the age-old Hellenic history, the ancient Hellenic ideal, blossomed and in the suffering island. All claim it and all want it."

Ek. Kondovraki
Director
Municipality of Athens


So sad the island is cut into two confllicting communities. May the spirit of Aphrodite heal all.

It would not have been possible to not have created an embroidery of Cyprus, a land that has suffered throughout the ages.

My art is intended to help revive the ancient Greek ideals. I will offer this particular piece to the President of the Cypriot Republic.

It is my intention that after all my pictures have been displayed in different exhibitions internationally, I will offer them to Greek and foreign personalities. In this way, I want to send a message to the world that the splendour of Greece has been spread to the world.
