Raiment of the Soul

In the framework of the temporary exhibition Raiment of the Soul, invaluable Greek and Cypriot
traditional garments from the National Historical Museum meet the penetrating lens of Vangelis Kyris.
His photos were then complemented with the embroidery of Anatoli Georgiev,
who manages to trace with his thread symbols of faith and protection, artistically elaborate designs
inspired by nature and sewn on the garments, which ‘speak’ of love, strength, richness,
the soul and, ultimately, of history itself. 

The exhibition was curated by Erica Vassiliou, while the general coordination was organised 
by Demetra Theodotou Anagnostopoulou, the Director of the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia, 
and Tzeni Lymperopoulou Savvidou, the Deputy Director.
