Created by Pavlos Tsakonas and Manolis Anastasakos, this huge mural on the wall of Hotel Vienna, Athens is officially titled "He, is praying for us". Though inspired by Albrecht Dürer's "Praying Hands", the folded hands are pointed down instead of up towards the sky; perhaps implying that "HE" is praying for Greece.
