by the beautiful island of Naxos, she had presented a

the “olive” tree, the eternal one!

the Optimum Life Inside Vibrant Emeralds
… a holy power, a symbol of life, hope, peace, honor and prosperity…
I wanted to escape from reality: green olives (emeralds) surrounded
by the bright blue color of the sky, of the sea, of Greece itself!
It is a personal journey to the skies, to set the mind and soul
free and pure.
Each single olive tree stands for a long undiscovered history
of the past, carrying the light and spirit of Greece to the present
life of people.
So many thoughts: a symbol or an idea? New as inspiration or
as old as earth? Current stream or enduring value? Perishable
No single answer…the viewer is welcome to interpreter this
tree in his/her own way.
In some pictures my aim was to stimulate the feeling of tranquility
in the sky; while in some other, I tried to depict the earth,
the natural environment we live in.
I don’t know if I’ ve managed to give you the “right” impression
of this trip but I think it was worth trying for….
