The Arkin Colony Hotel in Kyrenia, Cyprus have commissioned Maurice Blik to create a unique bronze relief panel, 6 metres tall, to be erected on the side of their new flagship head-offices being built next to the hotel.
The title of the work is 'For Love of Cyprus'. It conveys the turmoil and history of the region through a series of monumental figurative sculptures, culminating in a couple at the top of the panel intended to symbolize unity.
This will be the largest bronze sculpture to date undertaken by Maurice Blik.
Work on the sculpture is now under way and is expected to take around 12 months to complete.
It is hoped that the sculpture, once installed, will generate interaction with visitors and tourists to this stunning part of Cyprus.
