The artist Mikhalis Makroulakis has created 8 magnificent paintings, inspired by the crowning of victors with wreaths in the major athletic events of classical antiquity, namely Olympia, Nemeia, Pythia, Isthmia, Naia and Panathinaia. Leaves of wild olive, laurel, oak tree, wild celery, pine tree, or even apples were used for the making of those wreaths that constitute the focal point of the exhibition.
A special catalogue has been prepared for the exhibition with introductory chapters by Professor N. Chr. Stampolidis, providing useful information about the major athletic events in ancient Greece and the various plants that were used to make wreaths for the victors.
