The ceramic lamps - are handmade by Elena Stavropoulou with clay, a raw material so relevant to the soil – welcome the oil, in order to transform it into light. Just as the soil makes the tree from the seed. The lamps, with their curved lines, refer to the maternal figure, to mother earth, who welcomes, cares, nourishes.

They were part of the installation Constructing the Communs: Olive | Oil | Light, made for the the third edition o f Athena .
