Located in Monastiraki, the headquarters of Athenian rooftop bars, INO's creation was completed in late 2023 in collaboration with the Municipality of Athens' Public Murals programme. Three caryatids, each of a different scale, have been painted on what can only be described as the ideal wall for this project on a building on Ermou Street. According to the artist, "the one on the left represents the statue in the British Museum, looking towards the Acropolis and its place of origin. The one on the right looks at the Greek Parliament, condemning the country's politics. The middle one represents the corner statue of the Erechtheion, looking out over Athens and the rest of the country”. Finally, INO's trademark blue streak is applied here as tears running from the eyes of all three statues.
