The veranda with the melon is our home, our self. It symbolizes the joy of being home where we will cut the melon to taste the sweetness and to be refreshed. In front of us unfolds the great mystery of the whole planet, the green color which depicts the whole evolution of the planet. How did the great land (continents) and the great seas (oceans) become? And immediately the question arises how the sea calls us as a “temptation” to leave the melon (our family dining table) to look for better goods somewhere else, and metaphorically to become “land sailors” (figurative researchers who discover the mystery of the planet). And then, on the horizon will be revealed to us the great horizon where we will leave the earthly and temporarily to win the heavenly and eternal.
 
 
 
 
 
"The Dynamic Mother Earth and Horses", Acrylic on canvas, Athens, 2012.

Wild Horses of Indians galloping Arizona, on the very crust of the earth, while beneath them is personified the Mother Earth of Native Indians. The eye of the painter sees the surface of the landscape and understands that even in the most primal and deserted corners man exists.

Landscapes and beasts
Last night at 2 am (May 24, 2020) I drew the plans and then painted the canvas and called it “O GEROS TIGRIS”. Then I wrote on the back of the funny painting the (supposedly) ancient saying “he who gives landscape, gives also the beasts” and I signed it as “Anaximandrophilus Piraeus, end of the 1st century BC”, meaning the philosophy of the decline of Greco-Roman times.
