Dahlings! Welcome to A Tangle of Antlers!
I’m Your host Rene Rosso. Today I’m here to celebrate, with you, Marina Kanavaki: her special personal art, her love of all arts & music and passionate caring for all animals on earth.
It all began with Marina’s love of animals. In 2015 an Art Gown “Cecilia Lionheart” (above) was dedicated to Marina. The post was in honour of “Cecil the Lion” who had been killed by a ruthless trophy hunter.
Later in 2019, AGM Marina was drawn wearing “Cecilia Lionheart”. Cecilia was made of repurposed men’s ties from the 1970’s.
Holly – House of Heart sends in this beautiful poem of nature, in tribute to Marina.
I just love costume changes! So now let’s all change to Marina’s art. Art Gowns is the proud owner of 2 of Marina’s paintings. On the left is “Atom Sea #9” . On the right is “Atom Flowers #15”.
Combining both paintings, Art Gowns has created a gown titled “Hera #1” Not only is Hera a Goddess (like Marina) but it is the name of her most beloved puppy dog.
One way Marina expresses her thoughts is through photography. I’m especially intrigued by a series of photos she titled “Earth Nerve Network”.
The above Art Gown is inspired by this series. Click on the pic & go to Marina’s photography page & find 9 Nerve Networks there!
I’ve taken us all down Marina Memory Lane here, so let me finish up with this beautiful song “Remember” by Lauren Daigle. I adore her version below.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO IRIS! Iris (© Georgiann Carlson) not only helped to make my gowns, but did my “Antlers” hair-do, and made the “Antlers” headdress.
