Material: Brass

The initiative for the memorial was taken by an ad hoc private committee. The unveiling took place on November 3rd 2007.

According to the competition call: “the wining proposal should highlight the sacrificial and fighting spirit, and the passion for freedom. It should express the authentic ideals of October 1931 that led to the spontaneous rebellion of the enslaved Greek Cypriots longing for freedom and official union with Greece”.

Panayiotis Panayi Pasantas in his submitted description notes that his male statue, with the clenched fist and the haughty look, stares to the future with optimism, pride and patriotism calling all Greek Cypriots to line with him, while its height and the surrounding architectural construction impose their presence, underlining these concepts.

The monument was commissioned by the Cypriot Workers Confederation (SEK). The unveiling took place on January 25th 2003. 

Although the monument claims to celebrate a workers’ victory, the broken chain and the torch between the two figures bears direct implications to the national victories. Whatever the celebration is, the overflowing sentiment here is illustrated through the intense diagonal lines of the male and the female bodies, the stretching of her limbs and the playful mood of the child. In contrast to the norm, this woman is the only one depicted in public sculpture in Cyprus, along with Eleni Siakola, to wear ordinary modern clothes and thus appears part of a contemporary community.

The work was commissioned in 1999 by the Department of Public Works. Maria Loizidou is one of the most renowned contemporary Cypriot artists with international presence. Her work explores issues of memory and time in a rather poetic manner, mainly as a result of the materials she uses and her seemingly fragile forms.

Location: The Mother square, Siakolas Commercial Park, Athalassa area, Strovolos. Nicosia district

Material: Brass

Dimensions: 2.56 meters (with the pedestal)

Category: Cypriot Women

Photography: Evangelia Matthopoulou

In 2006-2007 Nikos K. Shacolas submitted to the Advisory Monuments’ Committee his proposal for a sculpture dedicated to the memory of his mother Eleni. 

“The Mother” overturns all visual connotations applied to Cypriot mothers. Because of its individual character it is the only public depiction of a mother as a charming young woman joyfully playing with her children, exposing her body in a carefree manner, and ignoring altogether the conformism of the implicit or explicit heroic commemorations. 

That exception proves the power of the prevailing female stereotypes in Cyprus. The snapshot impression this memorial evokes was allowed for the reason that it is not making part of the nationalistic iconology. The elimination of this parameter permitted the individual facial traits, the emergence of personal emotions, and the fluid, relaxed movement of the body. Among all female representations in commemorative public sculpture in Cyprus this is the only case of a woman with an individual identity who vindicates the right to be herself, indifferent to society’s gaze.
