The Praying Hands in the center of the Greek capital
Athens

In the center of Athens, Greece, at the area Omonoia Square, a graffiti inspired by "The Praying Hands" of Albrecht Dürer. The graffiti is wall painted on the hotel «Vienna» in Piraeus Street. However, the "praying hands" on the wall of the hotel, not turn to pray to God, as in 1506, but down. It's like God himself is praying to save this city and its inhabitants.
