What I can see

This sculpture is a miniature of a school classroom. It is made of brass, placed on stepped base; the figure of the teacher is 2m high and the construction is 3m high. It depicts 4 students with books in their hands, a blackboard made of stainless metal, on which verses of the poet Dionysios Solomos are written, and the teacher points to the board. His figure is upright and strict.

What I can't see

The work of Theodoros Papagiannis is dedicated to the anonymous Greek teacher, who managed to teach and educate the Greek children in times of wars, poverty and adversity.
