This memorable photo was taken at Karavas, October 2003. Would some famous/infamous or otherwise Karaviti, identify the statue that is visible in the foreground?

Mr Patrikios, had migrated to Egypt as a young boy. He lived in Horianika. He became a major property owner in Egypt. He donated the funds to set up the Agricultural School, before the second world war. As a result of the German invasion the currency collapsed, and the funds dried up. George Politis, father of Nick Politis, was the first Yioponos (Principal) of the Agricultural School in Karavas. Con George Poulos, and Angie Tr. Poulos.

To honour the original benefactor, Karavitithes always refer to the building at the "Patriko skolio", "Patrikios's school" - despite the fact that it has not been used as an agricultural school for many decades.
