The “Irene” project, by the students of the Commercial School Mitsis Lemythou, sends the Limassol students to the internationally renowed gallery of Saatchi in London, for a second year.
The artwork was selected in the top 20 out of 24,000 works of art from around the world. It will now compete in the final stage of the gallery competition.
The cluster consists of 17 human figures in natural size, forming the shape of a pigeon, the symbol of peace.
Students of the 2nd and 3rd years of High School and of the 2nd and 3rd years of Lyceums constructed the “Irene”, which was inspired by the pictorial artist Popis Nikolaou.
The same work has already been awarded 1st Prize in Sculpture at the 6th Pancyprian Contest of Fine Arts of Secondary General Education.
Last year the project “Immigrants”, which was created by the same artist in collaboration with the students of the Colloquium Lyceum, had the same success.
