The ‘Venus de Milo’ at Louvre Museum in France was discovered in 1820 on the Greek island of Milos.
I know, if Aphrodite spoke she would not be speaking in English, or French for that matter. But, I’m sure she would picked up a few foreign words here and there from all those years of being at the Louvre and listening to the tourists speak.
The strange thing about this post is that at the time that I came up with the idea I didn’t know that there is an actual campaign in Greece, specifically by the residents of the island of Milos, to bring the statue back to the island. So weird! Maybe it’s a sign that it will return? It doesn’t seem to likely since it has been at the Louvre for such a long time. But, if it does happen it would be an extraordinary event to see the removal and return of the statue however you may feel about it.

I”ll probably go back to this and see what else I can do. For now it’s good enough.
“For the love of money..’ handmade collage by Angela Zafiris
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Let it serve you, don’t let it be your master.
These women are not as silent as we think they are. They’ve seen and
heard it all!

‘Breaking the ice’minimal collage on paper by Angela Zafiris
“To be the first to break the ice of the enterprize.”- Plutarch, ‘Lives of the noble Grecians and Romanes’
“If it be so, sir, that you are the man
Must stead us all and me amongst the rest,
And if you break the ice and do this feat,
Achieve the elder, set the younger free
For our access, whose hap shall be to have her
Will not so graceless be to be ingrate.” Shakespeare, ‘The Taming of the Shrew’
“Birch Trees’ by Angela Zafiris
My first attempt at painting trees on a large canvas. I was inspired by a couple of videos that I saw on YouTube and thought I’d give it a try. Trees are fun to paint and I don’t think that you can mess up too badly.
Having a little fun with my digital collages again. These crazy girls are having a recklessly good time!
