What I can see

In the forecourt of the archaeological museum we see a sculptural composition, which consists of a fallen tree trunk covered with a concrete slab. Verses from the Apocalypse are written on the slab.

What I can't see

It was created by Kostas Tsoklis and is dedicated to Alexandros Iolas, who highlighted Tsoklis. The symbolism of the work is probably ecological. Modern man is destroying the natural environment, causing a dystopia.
