The white purity of Cycladic figurine: “In painting you can not chatter. You must discipline. You must restrain the synthesis anything unnecessary…” Yannis Moralis believed. His art reveals the path to this direction. From the decade of 1970 a conversation with the ancient art turned into the figurines of the Cyclades. In the charm of polished marble surface, the strict precision contours, pure geometry and simple monumentality of the figures.
The standard female figures in Cycladic figurines hold a general consensus that their nudity and the emphatic rendering of the breast and the pubic triangle refer directly to the idea of fertility – depicted as a female deity of fertility.
