CM: This is a drawing by Akrithakis for the cover of the 1976-1978 Deree College catalog. Using a ballpoint pen, Akrithakis drew all over a photograph of the Acropolis that runs continuously across both sides of the cover. On the front side, the artist created a drawing confined within a border. There, he drew over the Parthenon, endowing its pediment with an all-seeing eye, scribbling a suggestion of the temple's explosion, planting nearby what appears to be Poseidon's trident, accentuating the beauty of the Pelasgian masonry, and highlighting the presence of the Herodion Theater. On the rear side, Akrithakis teasingly fashioned an intricate drawing that spells out the word 'FUCK!'.
