"Archaios" (Greek for Ancient).

This is my photoartistic tribute to the ancient Greek civilizations.

I used some holiday ornaments from Kos and Cyprus for this abstract.

This was only my second attempt at photoart (submitted on another site June)

The Greek island of Kos, is where modern medicine started (the Hippocratic oath, originated with the great man, circa 400BC)

You can see the face of Hippocrates, 'father of modern medicine', top left of this image.
