What I can see

In the forecourt of the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki, we see a 10m high sculpture made from stainless steel. It is a saw on a diagonal inclination. It comes out through the earth and saws it. Among other things, the inscription mentions the similarity between the toothed edge of the saw and the ramparts of the Kremlin’s walls in Moscow.

What I can't see

The Russian sculptor Andrei Filippov symbolically raised the huge differences between people, cultures and opinions, which “cut” the bridges of communication, with tragic consequences for humanity.
