Most of us - umbrella lovers or not, have seen the famous 13m-high, stainless steel sculpture titled "Umbrellas" on the waterfront in Thessaloniki, Greece. Instagram is full of beautifully taken photos of the umbrellas in different stages of sunset or sunrise or pink for breast cancer awareness month (#thessalonikiumbrellas). They’re actually one of the most photographed sculptures around the world. You may think it’s a new installation but it has been an integral part of the waterfront in Thessaloniki, Greece, for more than 20 years.
