Chinese rickshaw

China will carry the undying light ... I have been very interested in Far Eastern civilisations since my youth.

At the age of 17 I embroidered this artwork out of my esteem for China, Korea and Japan. I am now presenting it as a gift to China, the country that will host the next Olympic Games in 2008.

I will have the joy and honor of presenting an exhibition of my works in China. My greatest desire is always to promote my country, the ancient Greek ideals and its historical struggles. It was in Greece in AD 776 that the light of civilisations and the Olympic ideal began. I believe that light will never die.
