Geroskipou Sculpture Park Update
Last year we blogged about the Pafos2017 Sculpture Park that had been erected in Geroskipou. Well, a little bird told us that more work was afoot, so we took the camera to have a look...
I monitor the viewing figures for our blogs. The recent blog on Paphos Old Town has been seen over 9000 times, for instance, making it our second most popular blog of all time. But this week I was surprised, because over 300 people viewed the blog on Geroskipou Sculpture Park. I wrote that last autumn. Normally, older blogs would expect to get 50 odd views a week. So what was causing the new interest?
A friend of mine supplied the answer, when they emailed me a link to a Pafos Press article about new work that was happening at the park.
And here is one of the new pieces. I love it! The sculpture is struggling to get out of the stone it was made from.
The new work is going on at the moment, as these empty plinths testify.
One of the Originals
That was there in 2017, but more empty plinths next to it...
That looks like a minotaur to me. A naked one at that.
