What I can see

The marble statue of Dimitrios Tsamis Karatassos is considered one of the best monumental sculptures in the city. It does not have a pretentious style, stands out for its plasticity and is one of the few works of the classicist academic tradition.

What I can't see

The work of Georgios Dimitriadis of Athens is a rare example of sculpture of the interwar period. Most of the city’s monumental sculptures were created after the war. Dimitrios Tsamis Karatassos (1798-1861) was a commander in chief of the Greek Revolution of 1821, fought in the regions of Naoussa and Halkidiki and was King Otto’s adjutant.
