Theatrical performances of Ibsen's masterpiece "A Doll's House" by the theatrical Group of Naoussa Paros. In "A Doll's House" Ibsen returns to the subject so vital to him,--the Social Lie and Duty,--this time as manifesting themselves in the sacred institution of the home and in the position of woman in her gilded cage.

Paros Classical Music Festival - An Aegean delight
20/09/2003

The Classical Music Festival is Paros' best kept secret for The last three years. This summer, the Cycladic island's festival has prepared four very special evenings for the local and visiting lovers of good music. Paros' Classical Music Festival is a high quality institution that became reality thanks to the tireless efforts of the local community, natives and foreigners who adopted the island as their home. Heart and soul of the whole effort is American-born pianist Nancy Goldenberg, who's the founder and the artistic director of the festival and a Paros resident for a number of years. Every year, Paros' Classical Music Festival invites some renowned artists from around the world. This summer could not be the exception, so from June 21 to September 20, four lovely concerts have been scheduled to take place in the island's capital, Parikia, at the premises of Archilochos Cultural Center, the most active club in Paros that organizes special cultural events regularly. In winter, Archilochos offers quality films once a week.

The Alkyonis wildlife refuge on Paros


More than 3,000 creatures saved so far, and the good work is all set to continue. The Alkyonis wildlife refuge on Paros has been taking care of birds and animals since 1995. A volunteer at the refuge tending a beautiful flamingo. Some 70 percent of Alkyonis's patients have been released back into their natural habitats. The Alkyonis wildlife refuge on Paros has treated 3,000 birds and animals from all over Greece. Every winter, when the hunting season starts, the workload of the medical staff and volunteers multiplies.

This year Alkyonis is better prepared than ever to receive its patients at one of the best organized wildlife hospitals in Europe.

A group of friends set up the Society for the Welfare and Protection of Wildlife on a trial basis in 1995. Most of them had some connection with Paros, the site of the only house available to them - the family home of the society's director, Marios Fournaris. It was decided to establish it as the society's headquarters.

The wildlife hospital proved far more necessary than had first seemed. Currently about 100 volunteers help out on Paros alone, while more than 400 volunteers throughout Greece locate and send injured wildlife to the island.

The initial budget to build the hospital (250 million drachmas) was prohibitive, especially when no state or municipal funding was forthcoming. But 112 volunteers from all over Europe worked on completing the project, and donations from corporations covered the cost of most of the equipment. This reduced the final cost to a tenth of the original, just 25 million drachmas.

The refuge is built on a 12.6-thousand-square-meter block of land donated to the society by the Longovardas Monastery of Paros and it has been planted with trees.

The surgeries, volunteers' accommodation and food preparation center are in a 170-square- meter stone building. The birds being cared for live in cages which are roomy enough for them to feel reasonably comfortable.

When they are ready, the animals are released into their natural habitat again, and 70 percent of those cared for by Alkyonis have been returned to the wild.

Those unable to survive alone in the wild stay at the refuge in specially designed, fenced-off areas. Visitors can view them from the observatory, but may not approach them, because wild animals in captivity suffer from anxiety, which the presence of humans aggravates. This is the great philosophical and ethical difference between wildlife refuges and zoos, says Fournaris. Wildlife refuges focus on respect for nature, while zoos focus on making a profit, sometimes ignoring the anxiety of the animals they house, and sometimes exploiting them. A refuge based on such a philosophy naturally does not confine itself to tending injured animals. Ever since its foundation, Alkyonis has systematically run environmental education programs, and its new facilities include a special room for that purpose.

  • Greece seeks return of 'looted' works from Getty
    October 28, 2005

    The J. Paul Getty Museum, already embroiled in a dispute with Italy over looted art, now faces demands by Greece over the return of allegedly stolen antiquities.

    Greece has backed its claims by presenting archaeological evidence proving the Greek origin of three items ranking among the masterpieces of the Getty's antiquities collection. A gold funerary wreath, an inscribed tombstone and a marble torso were all purchased in 1993. The fourth item, an archaic votive relief, was bought in 1955 by the museum's founder, J. Paul Getty himself.

    According to the Greek media, the gold wreath was purchased by Marion True, the museum's former chief curator of antiquities, who resignedthis month after 20 years with the Getty, the world's largest and wealthiest museum. Her resignation came about due to a conflict of interest. She reportedly secured a $400,000 (225,000) loan with the help of one of the Getty's main art suppliers for a holiday house in the Greek island of Paros.

    Ms True faces criminal charges in Italy over conspiring with dealers to traffic in stolen goods. Her trial is scheduled to resume next month in Rome.

    Greek officials initially lodged their claim nine years ago and renewed it in May. The Greek consulate in Los Angeles said that a 20 May letter to the Getty Museum cited a lack of evidence regarding the time and way the wreath and other objects were exported. The letter pointed out that there is a strong indication that the artifacts entered the art market illegally.

    Monday's LA Times said officials in the US had told the Getty before it bought the wreath and marble torso they had almost certainly been looted. The newspaper says Ms True first saw the wreath in a Zurich bank vault but walked away after realising the men she was dealing with were impostors. She went ahead with the deal several months later,museum records show.

    Ms True's lawyer referred questions to the Getty but the museum declined to comment. In the past, it has denied knowingly buying stolen artifacts. But the Getty has returned threeobjects the Italian government claimed had been stolen.

    Documents show that the votive relief bought by J. Paul Getty himself was from the archaeological site of the Greek island of Thassos.

    EU legislation on prosecuting antiquities smugglers has tightened in the past decade. Artifacts that lack a documented ownership history are presumed to have been illegally excavated.

    Around the world in 50 days
    February 25, 2006

    IN Jules Verne’s famous novel, British inventor Phileas Fogg went around the world in 80 days. Pang Piow Kan did that in 50 days.

    Journeying eastward from Penang and covering 16 cities in June and July last year, it was like a second honeymoon for the 60-year-old grandfather and his wife, Khoo Phaik Hoe, 55.

    Their stops comprised Bangkok, Hong Kong, Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, New York, Prague, Budapest, Athens, Greek islands (Paros, Santorini and Crete) and Singapore.

    But the best part of it all was that they did not have to pay a sen for their air tickets!

    The retired motor oil exporter had won the Travel Photographer of the Year (TPOTY) 2004 competition, beating 1,100 participants from 46 countries.

    His prizes were two round-the-world air tickets worth RM30,000, Adobe Photoshop software costing RM9,000 and 2,000 British pounds sterling (nearly RM14,000) worth of shopping vouchers.

    “Under the air tickets’ condition, we had to travel in one direction. We also had a choice of 18 airlines to select from.

    “I took 60 rolls of film and came back with 2,000 photos.

    “My favourite place was Greece where there were gorgeous scenes of white-washed houses in contrast with blue skies,” said the amateur photographer at his home in Taman Scotland, Penang.

    His winning portfolio of 24 entries depicted idyllic images of Semporna in Sabah and Bali as well as exquisite shots of birds in Batu Kawan, Penang. TPOTY is an international photographic competition designed to find the very best in travel photography.

    Pang is also an avid traveller who has covered 35 countries, including South Africa, India, China, Australia, Mauritius and nearly the whole of Europe.

    The self-taught photographer is no stranger to winning some of the most prestigious international photography competitions.

    He was voted Asian Photographer of the Year in 1993 by Photo Asia magazine and has the unprecedented distinction of being a five-time Overseas Chinese Photographer winner from 1995 to 1999.

    The amazing part of his feats is that he has never used a digital camera before.

    “I have invested RM40,000 in analogue cameras and related equipment. Thus, I don’t have any plans to switch to a digital one at all. Also, images taken by an analogue camera’s wide angle lens are better than those of digital ones,” claimed Pang.

    He became interested in photography in 1983 when he bought his first professional camera, a Nikon F3, to take photos of his young children.

    “A friend remarked that I had a high-end camera but my images were that of a pre-schooler. Stung by his criticism, I became resolute in proving him wrong and worked to improve my skills,” he added.

    Then we went to Paros and I saw for the first time the quintessential Greek harbour scene, with the cluster of startlingly white buildings against a sea and a sky bluer than you seem to get anywhere else. Thats where I fell in love with Greece. There was, and is, something easy and unchanging about the islands.
