Little paradises                     

Travelling around Crete I was always especially touched by these so carefully arranged courtyards and little gardens around the entrance of private houses. They reflect for me the desire of creating a kind of personal paradise, expression of the desire for an ideal world, for beauty and harmony. They are often created with minimum resources and slender means, but always as an alternative world to the everyday life in order to build some kind of a “small paradise” in its best sense, following the imagination of its historic origin as a walled or fenced garden (oldpersian:“pairi-daeza”- fenced plot ) a place to recreate, socialise and enjoy.
