Photographer's Note

Here in HBC Athens Square, the Parthenon was made of snow to celebrate the upcoming Athens 2004 Olympic Games. The Parthenon is a World Heritage site and is also known as the logo for UNESCO. The impressive relief carvings of the deities of Ancient Greece on the pediment certainly embody the finest quality in Ancient Greek art. We also reconstruct the statue of the goddess Athena, protector of Athens who once stood inside this magnificent temple. The Parthenon, the most perfect Doric temple, is one of the most influential buildings in the history of architecture.

I tried eliminate the buildings on either side, but it was not possible, because I wanted the building in its full glory.

The people in the foreground show the scale, but I can tell you it stood 14 metres in height and 20 metres width and 26 metres in length.

I have just cropped the sides a bit to lessen the distraction of the buildings on either side.
