Gaia Park is graced with a sculpture dedicated to the Olympic ideals, a gift of the Hellenic community
This evening in Gaia Park, in a ceremony that combined pride and gratitude, Mount Royal mayor Philippe Roy and the Town councillors unveiled a sculpture inspired by the Olympic spirit. The specially commissioned work, created by artist Praxitelis Tzanoulinos and shipped recently from Greece, was generously donated to the Town by the families of Paul and Melpa Kamateros, Nicolas Tsatas, Jimmy Christopoulos and Nicolaos Arcolakis. Among the dignitaries gathered at the park to celebrate the statue’s unveiling were Thanos Kafopoulos, Consul General of Greece in Montreal, Mount Royal MP Irwin Cotler and Laurier-Dorion MNA Gerry Sklavounos, who represents the nearby Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension neighbourhood.
The sculpture is a stylized globe encircled by the Olympic rings and a few laurel branches. Made of stainless steel, the sphere measures 1.4 m in diameter and weighs more than 320 kg. The selection of Gaia Park as its setting is no accident, as the green space was named in honour of the Greek goddess of the Earth in 2009.
Located near the Town limits and within easy walking distance of Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension borough, Gaia Park has another advantage as a location: it will allow the work to be admired by the large segment of the Greek community that lives nearby. (...) More
