RED DOOR AT PANAGIA PARAPORTIANI 18″ X 12″ – MYKONOS ISLAND GREECE
Canvas is stretched over an Oak wood beveled edge enhancing the 3-D effect of my Paintings.
Panagia means the “Virgin Mary”and Paraportiani translates to ‘’standing next to the entrance door.” One English translation names the whitewashed church as “Our Lady of the Side Gate.” In any case it is well known that the church consists of five churches. The churches were built on top or next to the others. There are four different architectural styles involved including Byzantine vernacular, traditional and western styles starting centuries ago in medieval time forward with the last renovations ceasing in 1920. A web search, if interested, will tell the entire history,
When we stopped and wandered around the church on our travel to Mykonos we also toured the town historical marine museum, they told us that when the church first started it was a very seafaring and fishing oriented island. Fisherman would brave storms and when it seemed they would not return, they would pray to God for a save return. Giving thanks to God, they would build a church praising God. It explains why the beauty of the five churches and the mixture of styles created a simple, clay-like structure, known the world over.
