Hermes Airports

For the 8 meter Santa artwork, Marianna Penga was inspired by the embroidery patterns of her Greek and Byzantine heritage. A digital design with reference to the decorative style of lace-making includes geometric cutwork, satin stitch fillings, the hemstitch, and needlepoint edgings.

Mariannas' work has been exhibited at International Trade Fairs abroad and in museums and galleries in Cyprus. With an avant-garde approach to textiles, she treats fabric experimentally and innovatively. Fascinated by the manipulation and plasticity of materials, her designs emerge from the patterns and shapes of nature. 

Examples of her textile work can be viewed on her website at
