BLACK AND WHITE ARTWORK DESCRIPTION

Wood-Burning Oven Ritual: Capturing Tradition in Karpathos

Step into the heart of Karpathos island's cultural heritage with this captivating black and white photography print. The image portrays two women dressed in the traditional local costume, known as "kavathe" or "kava'e" in the local dialect, as they light up the communal wood-burning oven in Olympos. This scene captures a timeless tradition that brings the community together.

Preserving Holy Week Preparations in Olympos

The initial days of Holy Week hold a special significance in Olympos, Karpathos. As Easter approaches, the village is immersed in the preparations, particularly baking. The community's wood-burning ovens play a central role during this time. The communal ovens are shared resources, welcoming everyone to bake using their own wood, as long as they keep the space tidy. These days are a celebration of tradition, where age-old recipes for bread and cakes are lovingly prepared.

Connecting Through Tradition: Kavathe and Community

This black and white photography print captures the essence of Karpathos' communal spirit. The two women, dressed in the elegant kavathe costumes, evoke a sense of unity and shared heritage as they kindle the wood-burning oven. The image encapsulates the beauty of tradition and the bonds that are formed through collective rituals.
