Competition for the Park of Europe, Nicosia, 2006

The Abduction of Europa by Zeus transformed into a bull is a theme in Greek mythology. Often adopted as a favourite theme in western art. In 2006 it was the theme of a competition in Nicosia, Cyprus, organized by the Municipality of Nicosia for the design of a park of Europe and an installation to be built into the park. We participated in coporetation with the architects: Dafne Kokkini, Katerina Lolou and Spiros Nasainas. We were finalists and were awarded a prize in the second stage.
