What I can see

The stainless steel sculpture is a 15m high column, located in Rizari Park and run through by an illuminated fiber. The metal elements of the column create multiple three-dimensional shapes. Its perspectives have opposite directions on a vertical axis.

What I can't see

Sculptor Giorgos Zongolopoulos presented the sculpture at the 1999 Venice Biennale and donated it to the Attiko Metro (metro construction company), as a token of gratitude, because one of his iconic creations was placed in the Syntagma metro station.
