Olympia and Olympics Mean one Thing For the Greeks!!!



Nestling in the Peloponnese, in a very picturesque location, lies Olympia of today with the ancient site of the Olympics shining proudly to the world with temples and ruins second to none just outside it.

Every four years the world visits Olympia, gets the famous FLAME that travels all over the world to end up in the stadium of the Olympics of today! Tokyo is the host of the Olympics of 2020, now 2021, and we are all to turn our attention to Tokyo via our TV screens.

Some seventeen years ago Zenetzis and I visited Olympia just before the Athens 2004 Olympics and the result was a group of five unique paintings of Olympia. These are unique paintings painted during a unique time for Greece and the Olympics history!

Enjoy!!
