What I can see

At the crossroad of two main streets of the city, there is a hidden sculpture that abstractly represents a female figure. It has plasticity and geometric style. The sculpture is lost in the vegetation that surrounds it and is part of the fountain decoration, which does not work. It consists of alabaster, is 95cm tall and the base, which functions as a water tank, is 1.17m. tall.

What I can't see

The work is of Giorgos Kalakallas, currently professor of architecture at the National Technical University of Athens.
