Description

“The entire archipelago, a fully embroidered vestment with right-spiraling snails, dolphins and black sea urchins, that the goddess Aphrodite of Cyprus is wearing for her journey to the fore and after. From the golden shores of Paphos to the most distant indented coastlines of the Mediterranean. Aphrodite walked on the waves, proud of her ornaments, for ordinary mortals to see and also for gentle artists to paint her seashells. She, herself, like an echo and a reverberation, having always in her mind and soul the sound of the sea shell that became a fisherman’s song to the ends of the world, cries out and sings the verse of Aeschylus: “thr sea, the sea, who can exhaust it”. – Lia Tornariti, Art Consultant
