Kato Hoops are knited or woven hoops representing a period in time when this area of Cyprus was colonised.
Early Christian period 330-650 CE
Frankish period 1191-1489
Ottoman period 1571-1878
Each Hoop is larger than the first and link together to resemble a portal through time. The first hoop is more primitive than the last but in the end the opposite was created due to the intricate details when weaving natural resources such as flax leaves. Ironically the contemporary hoop was the largest but the most fragile.
