What I can see

The bronze sculpture of Aristotle, made by Giorgos Georgiadis, depicts the ancient Greek philosopher and adorns the square that bears his name. Aristotle is seated, his clothes have strong folds and his name carved on the sculpture’s marble base. The sculpture gets a mixed reaction as evidenced in various online comments, where some visitors admire it and others blast it as an example of bad public art.

What I can't see

Aristotle (384-322 BC) was a philosopher and, together with Plato, a pioneer of ancient Greek thought. He hailed from Stagira in Halkidiki, in the region of Macedonia. He was Plato’s student and a teacher of Alexander the Great. At age seventeen, he went to Athens, where he studied for 20 years at the Academy of Plato. Alexander’s father, King Philip of Macedonia later trusted him with his son’s education. Upon his return to Athens, he founded his own school, the famous Lyceum of Aristotle. His genius is evidenced in his varied writings, which range from politics and morality to science and technology.
