Friday Photos: Takis Leather Art

To see us through the weekend, a collection of images from Takis Leather Art. Neil took these when he was passing the shop recently. These works of art are made by burning tiny dots into leather. In some cases, Takis uses a whole hide, and in other cases, a smaller piece of leather which is then framed. You can see the finished pieces at his leather workshop in Yialos, on the north side of the harbour between the war memorial and the clock tower, and the shop is open all summer every day. As well as showing and selling his artwork, Takis also sells a large assortment of leather goods, including bags, wallets, coats. You can find the shop on Facebook here:
