Thinking of Ellada

Thinking of Ellada



I am re-posting a drawing from a few years back that I made in Greece. I was thinking about how intertwined the culture, sea, air, and the earth are in this scene. Greece is an extraordinarily beautiful place. My thoughts are with the people of Greece who are headed for very difficult times. It is heartbreaking to see a beautiful place being torn apart by politics, corruption and money. Again.

Hopefully the following quote will prove true:

“If you deconstruct Greece, in the end you will find an olive tree, a grapevine and a boat remain. That is with as much you can reconstruct her ” -Odisseas Elytis

Despina Georgiadis
