The Architecture of the city Halle is rich in statuettes. Mythical creatures, horses, cows, lions and dragons are keeping their watch over the city. Orestia Kapida creates a new surprising cycle from those creatures. All sheets are cyanotypes, salt prints, that, if handled properly, stay forever and are continuously blue. Each print is a unicum since it is impossible to create two exact copies when the photo-sensitive chemical is applied to the sheets by using a brush. An amusing and, as i find mysterious imagery.
