Kyklos Project

The Project

The Hellenic Cultural Foundation has undertaken the development and creation of "Kyklos-Circle of Glory" at Athens Olympic Sadium. This historic mural and sculpture, presented to the city of Athens and people of Greece, honors the return of the Olympic Games to the land of its origins. United in spirit, we return to Hellas to celebrate the legacy, ideals and values that Hellenic culture has given the world. Ultimately, "Kyklos-Circle of Glory" will remain as a source of inspiration not only for Hellenes, but for all those who quest to kindle the flame of excellence within themselves.

Like the Statue of Libery, Kyklos is symbolic of excellence and like Ellis Island, it provides a place where Hellenes and Philhellenes can immortalize the names of there families and organizations on a historic venue in Greece. Join us by adding your family or organiazation through this rare historic opportunity.

The Artist

Artist, Euripides "Rip" Kastaris has been commissioned by the Hellenic Cultural Foundation to design and produce "Kyklos-Circle of Glory." Born in Thesaloniki, Greece and son of a Greek Orthodox Priest, Kastaris came to the United States at a young age as part of his father's mission. A graduate of Washington University School of Fine Art in St. Louis, Missouri, he has developed many fine works of art that fuse themes and ideas from antiquity with contemporary forms. As a native born Hellene and an accomplished artist, Euripides Kastaris brings a special insight and authentic energy to the production of this historic monument.
