New sculpture unveiled in heart of Paphos’ old town

NEWS Tuesday, 09 October, 2018

A new bronze sculpture created by Cypriot artist, Yiota Ioannidou, was installed on Tuesday in a recently renovated square in Paphos old town.

With commanding views of the town below and the Mediterranean behind her, a bronze of a child now sits atop a cushion and plinth crafted in marble, holding a sparrow, with others perched beside her, under the branches of a recently-planted olive tree.

The upgraded square is part of a massive project which has seen millions of euros invested in the centre of Paphos’ old town.

The new tree was included in the artists project and replaces a huge ancient tree that was uprooted by terrible storms in the area last year, and could not be saved.
