"Laus Athletis Olympia Vincentibus" (2004) Detail.
Comment: This work was conceived as a"SKETCH"/"PROJECT" for a possible theatrical panoramic background pannel. The theme of Olympic games illustrated here with the Acropolis (Athens, Greece) Architectural landscape, the sillouette of the Winner with Laurels and the inscriptions in old greek language serve here as a symbols building the atmosphere of Olympic Games. As source of inspiration certainly were The Olympic Games which were born in Ancient Greece and were held in honour of Zeus, the father of the Gods. The first Olympic Games took place in Olympia for the first time in the 7th century B.C. According to the myth, they were founded by Pelops, the King of Peloponnese. Olympia is considered as one of the most important sanctuaries of antiquity.The Olympic Games were reserved exclusively for young males from the Greek world which confronted each others for the glory and a wreath of olive leafs. The competition included athletics categories of wrestling, long jump, discus, running, javelin throwing, chariot, horse racing and the pancratium.
