Floor mosaic

We are very pleased to announce that the long awaiting floor mosaic has finally arrived and was today placed at the centre of our new Church, right underneath the dome.

It is a mosaic which depicts the double headed eagle, which is regarded as the main symbol of the Byzantine Empire (which was the longest ever lived Greek and Christian Empire) and the emblem of our Greek Orthodox Church.

It symbolizes power as well as ministry over both the Eastern and the Western worlds (one head looks towards East while the other looks towards West).

The artist of this magnificent piece of art is Constantinos Christou from Nicosia, which is the capital city of Cyprus.

The mosaic was sponsored by the brothers Mr. Stefanos Stefanou and Mr. Stelios Stefanou.
