***********************************

This artwork was inspired by the amazing beauty of Crete, a sunny Greek island in the Mediterranean Sea. The drawings are made with ink and watercolor, however instead of using traditional tools like dip pens or ink markers, I prefer to draw by using handmade dry twigs cut by myself.

***********************************

Translation of Cretan mantinada* used in this drawing:
"Sensitive hearts beat louder, because their love is true love, their pain is true pain!" M.M.

The mantinada was written by Manolis Maragoudakis (age 64) from Vederi village, Rethymno, Crete, exclusively for this work.

*The Cretan mantinades are 15–syllable rhyming couplets in the Cretan dialect of Greek. That's the unique way in which locals in Crete express their emotions of sorrow, joy, hope, desire, love, anger, revenge and nostalgia. According to historians, mantinades first appeared in the island of Crete in the 15th century, during the period of Venetian rule. Similar rhyming couplets are found on other Greek islands, however the difference in Crete is that this very old tradition is still alive today, especially in the villages.
