Enotites’ by Lefteris Olympios at Morfi Gallery
The painter Lefteris Olympios
presents his work at a new exhibition, at Morfi Gallery, Agkyras 84,
Limassol, from the 17th of April until the 5th of May. Under the overall
title, 3 Enotites, he presents work derived from 3 bigger groups:
A. Eleonora’s Gown: works
inspired by medieval Cypriot tradition, specifically, by a 13th-c. ceramic
plate that bears the image of a “falconer” holding three
falcons, and by a 14th-c. “wedding bowl” (Pieridis Museum,
Larnaca). The bird’s name – Falco Eleonorae – derived
probably from Queen Eleonora (second wife to King Peter the First of
Cyprus), who took it on her hunting expeditions.
B. The Inevitable Purple: 25 ink and tempera portraits,
placed together as a larger work.
C. Manna of Mamas: 10 works, the motive for the creation
of which has been St. Mamas’ church in the village of Lefkara.
They have been inspired by an episode in the saint’s life, in
which, deer appeared in the desert in order to feed the saint with their
