“The object of Art is to give life a shape.”
– William Shakespeare
Why is art important?
Understanding our PAST contributes to who we are in the NOW. Art is the best and the most visual reflection of every nation´s history and culture. Through symbols, colors and materials we are able to meet our ancestors,those who lived on this planet centuries ago. Through art we can touch the eternity…
Therefore, every trip I undertake always has some cultural aspects and plans in it. Even when you´re heading to the land of never-ending summer, sunny Cyprus, – there is always more to the story. Cultural places, full of art pieces from the past, give us knowledge, understanding and inspiration.
No wonder during my week in sunny Cyprus, the mosaics at Kato Paphos Archaeological Park were one of the brightest memories.
Kato Paphos Archaeological Park
Kato Paphos Archaeological Park is composed by several houses and expositions. “House of Dionysus” has the most impressive mosaics, restored as a part of Roman villa, dating back to the 2nd A.D. The archeologists say the house belonged to a member of ruling Roman class.
2nd A.D?! It is unbelievable how well preserved are these mosaics. And yet everything our humanity has created in the last centuries constantly needs renovation or restoration. Are we seriously heading in a right direction towards progress?!
