Phil Akashi – Goddess of fertility on a rooftop in ibiza

in addition to its mention within homer’s odyssey as a home for sea-nymphs and sirens, who attempted to entice odysseus from his ship with their song, the history of es vedrà is also considered to be connected to the phoenicians and the carthaginians. for the phoenicians, (the ancient mediterranean civilization) the small island was thought as the birth place of tanit – their goddess of fertility who is known as the symbol of ibiza. with this in mind, akashi has also layered the rooftop with letters of the phoenician alphabet, replicas of sa caleta remains where the phoenicians first settled, and representations of the goddess.
