Pirgon Ebru Arabesque Marble

In Greek Mythology, Lycurgus was the king of the Edoni in Thrace, son of Dryas, the "oak".

Dionysus is the god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, of ritual madness, fertility, theatre and religious ecstasy, son of Zeus and the mortal Semele. Alcohol, especially wine, played an important role in Greek culture with Dionysus being an important reason for this life style, that’s why Lycurgus banned the cult of Dionysus.

But the Olympian Gods got angry with Lycurgus and sent him to death on mountain Falakro of Drama.

From Dionysus began the first arabesques performances (influenced by wine harvest and grapes) located in Ancient Greece.

On the other hand, Ebru technique carries marbling paper culture with the coexistence of various cultural elements through ages, which resembles the marble itself.
