Lazotis is a traditional yet cheerful circular dance danced by men and women in several regions of Crete. It is characterized by two small seats which must be beautiful aesthetically and also in terms of timing. In recent years it has become predominantly danced by women.

In all Vari pieces, abstraction is refined to the hummed mantra of “Beauty and Harmony” where bold geometric forms are accentuated by colour coming from unconventional mediums. They are sculptures that become wearable with the force of a poetic statement. The new medium the Artist has been working on is resin that was a fortuitous discovery. Vari noticed the beauty of its lightness and transparency; it has a marble like feel that reminds her of the Thassos marble that she uses in her sculptures. The forms are enhanced by gold acquiring preciousness and as a whole they become strong.
