Concept

Bythos "Sea-Depths" and Aphros "Sea-Foam" were the guardians of Aphrodite’s birth from the shell out of the sea. What’s masculinity? We asked to the sea. We have found each other into the darkness. Another world without need for words. Just skin, bones, sweat and a beautiful sky into which dye and resurrect again and again and again.
