Monument for the 700 Thespians

The headless statue is a symbol of the anonymous contribution of the 700 Thespians for democracy to their country. The one wing up is a symbol of victory, the other down a symbol of their death and sacrifice. The naked body is a symbol of Eros, the first god of the ancient Thespians, the god of creativity, beauty and life.
