Store: Merchandise. Promotional and T-Shirts.
Every new mp3 album with Katerina Stamatelos's music is marked by the simultaneous circulation of either "promotional" or other (like T-Shirts) merchandise. The theme of these products is always inspired by the title of the album.
Threnos provided the concept behind all merchandise accompanying this album.
The main theme of this composition is about the violent death of a young girl (Antigone, from Sophocles's homonymous tragedy). Although Antigone is buried alive in her death chamber, it would be hard to depict this type of cruel punishment in a visual way. Therefore, the pistol was chosen as a "modern equivalent" for murder. Further symbols chosen were: the butterfly (as a reminder of youthful fragility and also of a soul-escape), and the cross (on the poster)-as Antigone seems to carry her own cross (the destiny of her family).
These merchandise products are also sold on a print-on-demand basis. You can take a closer look of each item (size and quality) just by clicking on its icon. All merchandise can be purchased here:
