Awakening of the Maltese Goddess
Famous for its ambience, Casino’ di Venezia is the home to some of the best paintings of the Maltese Goddess by Raphael Labro. With its unique site and sumptuous setting, the Casino the Venezia is the perfect background to the colourful paintings of the Maltese Goddess. The theme of the paintings fit well the heavenly food Casino di Venezia clients enjoy at the restaurant now surrounded by divinity.
20th December 2007 to 25th February 2008 In presenting the first stage of the “Awakening” exhibition, Dame Francoise Tempra, claimed how, this year, in September, Malta’s heritage proved of international appeal and prestige, since, in Italy, with the September “Labroesque Maltese Goddesses”, at the Galleria Zodiaco in Licata RAPHAEL LABRO received both The Malta Biennale President Award and the Licata City’s Award.
A special highlight of the exhibition is Labro’s masterpiece ”Meditating Goddess”, which was honoured with the Special President Award (Eloquence of the Female Figure) at the 7th Malta International (105 Nations) Art Biennale in August 2007. Here we see the Goddess Being, serene in thought, the perfect symbol of a fertile Mother Earth, bringing a future that is echoed in the Neolithic temples of Malta, where the landscape blazes with sumptuous hues of reds and blues, highlighting the burning gold and graceful colours of Hagar Qim.
Open Tuesday to Sunday from 7pm onwards. For private and preview viewing or invitation, please contact (+356) 9985 5103 or email us at:
