This is a multi-printed image of Aphrodite as her Greek symbol of the Goat. The image pays homage to Andy Warhol with his multi printed images and follows his process of printing an image without laying more ink, allowing each print to strip away the ink, therefore printing a gradually disappearing image.
The Goat is a symbol of Aphrodite which was an animal sacrificed to the Goddess. It is an animal that has many connotations with sacrifice in many religions. Aphrodite is linked to love and desire with this image observing a polemical standpoint concerning the Euro and Cyprus.
I had many conversations with the local people of Lemba, and what they felt about the introduction of the euro and to the EU - its effect upon the Cypriot economy.
Here in the image, the goat of Aphrodite is ready to be slaughtered in the blood sea of Euros, with the resonant image of the goat responding to The Scapegoat by William Holman Hunt of 1854. Make of my polemical point as you will.
