“My great grandparents were from Kiafa Souliou, real warriors and protectors of the community, who settled in Dolou Pogoniou Society of Epirus” explained artist Marianthi Raptis. Her art works and stories brightened up a blizzard and dismal snowy weather in 2015 New York City. “Our house in Dolou Pogoni was built in 1852 by my great grandparents Vasilis and Kosta Zervas. When the Turks took over Souli during the Greek uprising for freedom, they came to Epirus with hand crafted rifles. They protected the villagers from persons trying to harm them. This is my Epirotan heritage.”
