The Patchwork Tree In Ivis Maliotou Park

Published 26th of December, 2016

I noticed this tree when I was out logging shops for the Paphos Life Directory. I was intrigued by it so thought I would take a closer look.

Is This An Art Exhibit?


In order to put together the Paphos Life Directory, I drive around Paphos filming it street by street. Then I sift through the film and take details of all the shops and points of interest that I can see. It is hugely time-consuming, but does throw up some surprising results. While scanning my copy of "From Lidl to The Mall: The Director's Cut" I was surprised to spot a tree wearing a jumper. I had to investigate, so when time permitted I visited Ivis Maliotou Park (more on that in another blog) and took some snaps.

The Tree From The North


If you look there is a tiny bit of duplication; two red fishes on yellow backgrounds. But other than that, each patch looks unique.

From The East


From the east there are a few holes.

From The South


From this angle it almost looks like a foot in a sock.

From The West


From the west, the tree looks fully covered, and the patchwork is spreading out across the floor, like a multi-coloured moss.

--- EDIT ---

It turns out that this is an art exhibit designed to symbolise peace in the Island. Amen to that.

It's a year since we had a proper look around Old Town, so we thought another blog was due. We won't be revisiting every place we visited in the previous blogs. Instead we will be focusing on new additions and places we missed last year. Even so, we took nearly 100 pictures for this blog, so we have split it in two. Part 2 will be published on monday.

You may remember back in Spring we blogged about the The Patchwork Tree in Ivis Maliotou Park. That was assembled by Peace2Peace.

We also took the opportunity for another stroll around the area, to have a look at the brand new Markideio Theatre...

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?
