The statue was commissioned in 2008 and the unveiling took place on July 26th 2009. Four verses of a Kostis Palamas’ poem are noted on the pedestal:
“Breaths wondering in the afterlife, remains even though you exist in a deep sleep, I share my glory with you, blessed may you be” (Πνοές κι αν πλανάσθε σ’άλλη ζωή, λείψανα κι αν κοιμάσθε, σας λειτουργώ τη δόξα μου, μακαρισμένοι νάστε).
