What I can see

At the southern entrance of the TIF, we see a 10m high sculpture. A metal cube rests on the tip of a pyramid and is pierced by a metal bar, which gives a balance to the cube relative to the tip of the pyramid. On the cube, there is another metal surface that represents the world map similarly to a relief. The base of the sculpture is marble and has floodlights for its lighting.

What I can't see

The work of Angelos Pavlos Kougioumtzis symbolizes the international range of the Thessaloniki fair.
