Bell Tower

Bell Tower

The sculpture “Bell Tower” was made in 2016 for the film “The Rose of Smyrna”, by George Kordelas. In the shadow you can see the bell tower of Agia Fotini of Smyrna. In order to be made, photos of the old bell tower were used, also photos and drawings of the new bell tower built in Nea Smyrni. In this sculpture one can notice various elements that do not participate in the shadow but they give information. Such element is the image of Agia Fotini on the sculpture, which gives identity to the bell tower, it correlates with the specific one. In addition, it affects the shape of the sculpture. In order to place an image of a Saint, the sculpture was given the shape of a shrine … You can see flowers in various places as usual in the churches. The flames are refering to the fire that destroyed Smyrna and the bell tower. On the floor of the sculpture, the blue surface in combination with the silver cards standing on it refer to the sea and the ships with which the Greeks left Smyrna, having taken with them a few things in a suitcase and memories (empty picture frame)
