The Idol of Pomos is a prehistoric sculpture from the Cypriot village of Pomos. It dates back to the Chalcolithic period, around the 30th century BC. The pagan sculpture represents a woman with her arms spread and is a cult image representing a fertility or mother goddess. These idols were worn as amulets around the neck, just as this idol wears a small copy of itself. Over one hundred cruciform figures have been discovered which were made in southwestern Cyprus during the period 3000-2500 B.C.
The Eleousa (Virgin of Tenderness) is a type of depiction of the Virgin Mary that represents her compassionate side. She is shown bending to touch her cheek to that of her child, the infant Jesus Christ, who is nestled against her cheek, emphasizing the reciprocal affection and relationship between mother and child.
Aphrodite is the inspiration behind Sister. Like our craftspeople, she is an island native and therefore our Sister and muse. Each pendant is handmade in Lefkara by George and Panagiotis. Read more about our makers here.
