The Good Shepherd, artwork of Christos Lefakis

Copy of a fresco found in a tomb. The fresco covered the western narrow side of the tomb. Against a background of dark ochre the young figure of the Good Shepherd is depicted, now destroyed in half. The theme of the Good Shepherd is a continuation of the ancient Greek kriophoros (ram-bearer). The youth is wearing a short tunic bound in the waist and boots. He has the hands folded upon the chest. On the upper and lower part the composition is framed by red strip.
