Guatama Buddha, the Enlightened One

With this embroidery I wish to honour China, whose capital Beijing will host the next Olympic Games in 2008.

I am anticipating an official invitation from the Chinese government to the Games to exhibit my collection of traditional Greek embroidery dedicated to the 2004 Athens Olympics.

I will gift this card, along with embroideries of the "Great Wall of China" and a number of other cards, shown earlier in Greek promotions in the Middle East Times newssite, to the government of the People's Republic of China.

These will include the national flags of China and the United Kingdom, in honour of those two friendly Olympic countries, along with "Buddha" and "Big Ben."

I will also offer a number of my artworks to distinguished personalities from Greece and abroad, and by so doing I wish to represent my homeland Greece as a country that values culture and tradition beyond race and national boundaries.
