Where I stayed
The Library Hotel, Kalavasos
Michalis Mozoras is an artist living in Kalavasos.
The sign on his door - 'Art Gallery' urges me to enter the gate and get inside.
An hour back as I was walking in the upper neighbourhood my eyes caught sight of his garden but I could not make out from the distance why would a person collect all those pebbles in a yard.
Now I am here and I understand why.
As I enter the gate I see all kinds of pebbles of different shapes and colour scattered throughout the garden and as I move further in I see more and more pieces of art.
I am amazed with all this
We come out in the garden again and he takes me to his workshop which in reality it is outside in the open yard. He shows me how he chisels out the different pebbles and how they are given their shape.
I am telling him how much I love the Cypriot tradition, and that I very often travel to the island. His love on the Cypriot tradition is obvious too and he gives me the impression that he is a person of multiple talents.
Suddenly he tells me that he is a composer and a singer as well.
I tell him that I love Cypriot traditional songs with the heavy Cypriot accent and he disappears for seconds and comes back with an original copy of his CD
I believe this visit to the art gallery of Michalis was indeed very interesting and I urge people who happen to go to Kalavasos to step by, meet Michalis and see his work of art.
