In 2011, the artist Pavlos Tsakonas was inspired by Albrech Dürer’s popular 1508 pen-and-ink drawing Praying Hands (German: Betende Hände), creating an artwork at Peiraios street, near Omonia Square, that was massively appealing and interacted with its surroundings thanks to its dramatic style and monumental proportions. His new work, Two, Hands, a large-scale mural at the central entrance of Peiraios 260 re-appropriates the classical drawing and creates a fresh variation of it, opening it up to new interpretations, with the participation of architect Vassia Christou.
