When ancient becomes contemporary

  1. mimi, the cycladic inspired pieces are amazing. congratulations!

  2. This shape is fascinating. What is a cypriotic figure? Is the christian cross in association with this?

  3. It is a figurine out of chalk from the island of Cyprus, between 2000 and 1800 before Christ. I would say I looks more like an abstracted human body but I agree that it reminds of a christian cross. I guess it is such a universal symbol that we can't tell where it started and it's shape will be altered and repeated for ever trough history... I think that's what it makes so fascinating.
