The artist Yianni poses by his creations at his showroom in Athens, Friday, June 22, 2012. For at least two decades, artist Yanni Souvatzoglou has displayed his bronze sculptures in the old Athens neighborhood of Plaka. He depicts Dimitra, the goddess of fertility and agriculture, as a slender figure, like a stalk of wheat, with a symbolism that suits hard times. "She told us to use our ingenuity to survive even if we don't have wheat," said Souvatzoglou, who cites his main influences as the ancient Minoan and Cycladic eras. "She told us, 'Before you do something important in your life, you should apply thinking' _ she's holding her head _ 'But if things don't work out for some reason, be flexible.' Like the wheat is when the wind is blowing." (AP Photo/Petros Karadjias)
