Apple of Life

This one was interesting. On one side you have half an apple, with a single, large seed.

On the other side, the seed has been replaced with a mother feeding a baby, a baby in the womb, and a sperm cell. It shows the various stages of birth.

I really like this one, but I don't know why.

Fish Head

I took four identical pictures of this statue. Every time I walked away from it, I saw something new, and went back for another look. Why I had to take another picture each time I have no idea, but there you go. A lady standing next to me asked me if I had noticed that the lady in the half-egg, or seed pod, had a fish head instead of a human one. To my shame I hadn't noticed, my eyes had obviously been drawn to the boobs instead.

Neptune?

The indoor Neptune is multi colour. I do like the multi-coloured statues. It brings them alive a bit more.

Kouklia Memorial

We recently blogged about a little shrine by the motorway. It turns out that it was placed there in memory of two soldiers who lost their lives in a helicopter accident. I was confused myself, because I knew there was a helicopter crash memorial, but it was a little further away from Paphos, near Kouklia. An internet search revealed that there had been two crashes. So in the interest of fairness, I thought we should take a look at the other shrine. It isn't visible from the motorway, but if you take the trouble to find it, you will not be disappointed, as it is a lovely memorial...

Geroskipou Sculpture Park

As part of Pafo2017, a new Sculpture Park was commissioned in Geroskipou. Inspired by local history, legends and traditions, ten Cypriot and foreign sculptors have created on-site works drawing on the history of the area and, in this way, leaving behind them the traces of the European Capital of Culture. That's what the blurb says anyway. So what are they like?

Paphos Christmas Lights Switch On
