What I can see

The Moon on the Coast is a 3.8m high decorative sculpture made of stainless metal and represents a crescent moon. It is illuminated at night and in combination with its current location, it looks particularly impressive.

What I can't see

The municipality of Thessaloniki assigned the work to the sculptor Pavlos Vassiliadis. It has also been exhibited in Saint Tropez for a period of a few months. The final placement of the sculpture was in the New Seafront. It was vandalized, however, by fanatic Christians, who considered it an Islamic symbol. Then, the sculpture was placed in the water.
