Giving History a Face Lift ... a Monument Restoration Story !!!

General description

Being an ancient monument is not an easy job, indeed...

You have to stand there, still and proud as can be for centuries upon centuries … and I’m sure you all know that time is never kind on anything it touches…

But what to do??? I mean, your job is to be there!, always standing!, impressive!, dominant!, beautiful!, ever lasting! …

But how??? Come to think of it, people have cosmetic surgeries done on them all the time… why a nose job on you is easier than a column job on me??

Everyone goes on about how you don’t look like you once did, about how great you once were, but a monument can’t ever go back to its original state… Or can it???

Come and find out… in Athens… while Giving History a Face Lift… and learn a Monument Restoration Story …
