Τhe ecumenical and diachronicity of Hellenism occupying a central position in the artistic universe of George Zongolopoulos, the Olympic Circles could only be a key pattern in his work.
Α Geometry enthusiast, Zongolopoulos systematically uses the circle in his works, either autonomously or as an inspiration for various complex motifs. Such a case is also the Olympic Circles, a work which essentially a subjectively rendering of the Olympic Games emblem in three-dimensional form and with an extra circle.
The pattern was originally used in 1998 for a three meter stainless steel sculpture, which currently stays at the National Glyptotheke (Goudi). A smaller replica of this work can be seen at the Outdoor Glyptotheque of Psychiko. A more monumental version of the pattern was the sculpture of 15 meters which since 2001 is located outside Athens International Airport "Eleftherios Venizelos".
