Ergon Mykonos Linear Venus vs Cycladic head pillow cover draws inspiration by Ancient Greek Art. Aphrodite of Milos, better known as the Venus de Milo, is an ancient Greek statue and one of the most famous works of ancient Greek sculpture. Created by Alexandros of Antioch, between 130 and 100 BC, the statue is believed to depict Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love and beauty (Venus to the Romans). It is a marble sculpture, slightly larger than life size at 2 metres high. It is currently on permanent display at the Louvre Museum in Paris. The statue is named after the Greek island of Milos, where it was discovered. Cycladic figurines are best illustrated by their clean-lined and minimalistic forms, that characterise Cycladic Art, the most distinctive art produced throughout the Bronze Age Aegean around 3rd millennium BC.
All of the Ergon Mykonos creations are inspired by the images of Greek mythology, elements and materials of our rich culture and are customised to the contemporary, minimal aesthetic & pop culture. Mitos collection is inspired by the thread that princes Ariadne gave to Theseus to escape the Labyrinth. The homeware collection follows the aesthetics of Minoan and Cycladic art and presents unique handmade items with their own personality, and with references to the Greek history.
