MIREN LAS MASCOSTAS DE LOS JUEGOS
Y su "descripcion"
Phevos and Athena are brother and sister and the official ATHENS 2004 Mascots. Their creation was inspired by an ancient Greek doll and their names are linked to ancient Greece. And yet the two siblings are children of modern times.
The names of two Olympian gods: Phevos, name of the Olympian god of light and music, known as Apollo. Athena, goddess of wisdom and patron of the city of Athens.
In this way, Phevos and Athena represent the link between Greek history and the modern Olympic Games.
Phevos and Athena represent the values of Olympism: participation, brotherhood, equality, cooperation, fair play.
Athena and Phevos are two dolls. They remind us of the pleasure of indulging in games; they highlight that the value of participation is higher than that of victory.
At the same time, they are brother and sister, a boy and a girl, symbols of equality and brotherhood around the world. Above all, the two children showcase the everlasting Greek value of human scale and remind us that humanity was, is and will remain at the heart of the Olympic Games.
Estan muy fumados los griegos...
