Yes! The new metal gate made from foraged materials is finally installed in the restored stone archway at the Livadiotisa monastery.
Some design adjustments had to be made and the gate was re-sized to fit its new space; minor design modifications accentuate the significance of the site. Although I led the project, I couldn't have done it without all the people, both Greeks and other nationals, who contributed to its success. This includes the many individuals and businesses who donated when participating in walks and using herbs and similar.
Special credit goes to Vicky from the builders yard, who kept account of the donations, Babis for scaling my rough drawing into the computer, Helen for her patience to details of the scaled drawing, and Vangelis for preparing the base of the archway.
Finally, and importantly, thanks to our skilled smithy, Andonis, who overcame the inevitable snags of remaking a gate in size and style to fit its new position and purpose.
Quite a team effort!
