Minos Argyrakis’ “Liokrousi”

In 1977, during his stay in the old, traditional settlement of Koutsounari, in Ierapetra, Crete, Minos Argyrakis made wall paintings in the taverna of “Mrs Lena” Nakos as well as in her dining room. In his compositions one finds his favourite subject matter. The god Pan and the Mermaid, the sun and the moon. The grandmother dressed in black and her black clad Cretan husband with the dimly visible villages of Elounda in the background. The limpid world of the sea with its cuttlefish, seahorses, plants, flatfish and the mermaid.
