Description Two large tapestries of the 1970s period, representing constellations and signed Lozzi, stretched on a wooden frame.
They were created to adorn the dining room of the Aquarius liner, built in 1972 on the Piraeus shipyard.

The Aquarius ship was built for Hellenic Mediterranean Lines (HML) in 1972. It was the first HML cruise ship, and also the first cruise ship built in Greece. Aquarius was ordered and laid down at United Shipping Yard in Perama . It was launched on September 15th 1971 and commissioned in June. 1972. The vessel was 4591 gross tons, 103,71 metres long and could carry 312 passengers.

Born in 1929, Erminio Lozzi is a noted painter, tapestry maker, interior designer and animator (for animated movies). He might be best known in the art world for creating "Dino the dinosaur"; for the "Pierrafeu", but Lozzi was a prolific interior designer and helmed the refit of almost every Epirotiki Lines' cruise ship, from Argonaut to Orpheus, Jason, Neptune, World Renaissance, and the Aquarius for Hellenic Mediterranean Lines .

Lozzi's style was warm, employing vivid oranges and yellows, burnt umber, avocado green and turquoise. His ships had metallic art and gorgeous original tapestries.

These tapestries were perfectly cleaned by a specialist.
