Peter Prineas, as an Australian of Kytherian Greek ancestry, has written Katsehamos and the Great Idea to tell the story of his ancestors’ migrations in the early 1900s' from Kythera in Greece to the United States, and subsequently to Australia.

I have just read a book that fits neatly into that nexus where man meets history. Peter Prineas’ Katsehamos and the Great Idea tells a tale of struggle, courage, stoicism, doggedness and pride which is profoundly recognizable to the children of the Greek Diaspora, echoing in the secret part of our soul, to remind us of who we are; where we come from. ...

[This is a work in progress. A 7-piece shell form (think the Shell petroleum logo) - in "clay yellow" - is to be placed in the centre (blue) circle
I have yet to devise a 7 piece shell icon - with which I am satisfied].
The shell metaphorically signifies the womb of Gaia (the world) - and the emergence of the female principle into the world (ie Aphrodite) - which allows for the emergence of humanity.

Looking after the shop
Ways to document, care for and interpret our shopping heritage
The changing nature and needs of small
businesses mean that many of our older shops and their contents face an uncertain future.
There are different ways of caring for our
shopping heritage, depending on the circumstances of the particular business and owner, and the local opportunities available to those wanting to look after it.
In the accompanying education kit you will find some exhibition activity sheets for secondary students.
These activity sheets will help focus students’ attention on aspects of the exhibition, while stimulating them to think a little beyond the exhibition to some of the implications of the exhibition content. There are also lots of fun questions.
It is suggested that students work in pairs to encourage discussion and exploration.
This kit includes:
