Something is missing...

...and it's not the the head and arm. It's the respect to a form of art that made the ancient greek civilization able to express everything they had to tell. Unfortunately, the neo-greeks don't seem to respect the past, although they jump on every oportunity to say that "we" are special because our ancestors were the ancient greeks. "We" are proud of ancient Greece. I am not sure, though, if ancient Greece would be proud of us.

P.S. I have turned by blogger account to beta. That's why I cannot (yet) comment to other people's blogs. My apologies to all of you, friends.

Still so much beauty left, even after vandals and time have changed the artist's work. Lovely shot, Ovelikios.

Unfortunately, there is nothing being done to solve the problem of neogrecos not being able to respect the heritage of their ancestors. I saw some hope during the Olympics but that was just something ephemeral.
