"ANATASIS",or "DANCERS", the newest, monumental creation of the internationally renowned sculptor and painter Kostis Georgiou dominates the central square of Voula.
This particular project is a cluster of 7 acrobat-dancers, who make up a dynamic proposal twoards exaltation, hence the name of the artpiece.
The sculpture was cast into aluminum and then painted red. The red color has become a trademark Kostis Georgious' work in recent years,also being found in other monumental works, such as the 15-meter "COSMICON" set at the entrance of the Vanke shopping center in China, "GALILEO" Elizabeth Hospital in Brussels and other public sculptures.
This is the work "Taurocathaption" by the famous sculptor Kostis Georgiou, who designed and donated to the Municipality of Vari Voula Vouliagmeni.
It is the third statue the artist has donated to the municipality, after preceding "Equus" in Vouliagmeni and "Anatasis" in Voula Square.
The work is inspired by bullfighting, a Minoan-era sport in which the athlete jumped over a bull.
The feast was dedicated to God Neptune. Sport, unlike bullfighting, did not require the killing of bulls. Its purpose was to show the courage and flexibility of athletes.
An ammonite (fossil shell) is made using copper pipes ,at its core lies a blue crystal, and when the sun rises its light passes through that crystal and colors the asphalt.
At sunset, the sun shines in the same way as in sunrise, making the Sea, where the light reflects, calm down.
There was, under the ammonite,a base with copper shapes of people, symbolizing the workers of the sea who empty their nets every day at the waterfront.
This section of the sculpture was unfortunately stolen.
