Artist's Description

This is a statue of Kostis Palamas, one of the most popular Greek poets at the end of the 19th century who, amongst other things, wrote the words to the Olympic Anthem. His statue is situated in front of the National Library in the centre of Athens.

What the picture does not show, is that he’s looking out onto one of the most central and busy Athenian streets with traffic, shops and bustling crowds. The greenery around him fences him from the mundane of the town centre and allows him to contemplate the muse that made his words so strong and so popular.
