NEW YEARS CARD

 

Each year, the Cultural Assosiation of Metsovo in Athens share their wishes with their members and friends for the new year ahead. The assosiation's purpose is to aid the village of Metsovo when possible and promote its cultural herritage.

 

The design of the card carrying the wishes of fortune and prosperity references traditions, folk themes and patterns, local history as well as current issues in the village.

2020 edition

 

Traditional buildings in Metsovo are built of heavy stone, a local material providing safe habitat in the hard weather conditions and offering a pristine image to the village visitor. What occurs inside these buildings is hardly ever visible from the street due to thick walls and small windows.

 

This year, the central Church of Aghia Paraskevi is illustrated as a transparent glass building, all accepting and blissful. Wishing for more extroversion and articulate kind expression of inner thoughts, the card is a reminder of what makes us better individuals within a community.
