In 1972 Solounias founded the Pythagorean Academy of Art on the Island of Samos, Greece, in cooperation with the Boston Academy of Art.

In this piece, based on the titles, shows the a variation of the creation myth. The two figure on the bottom, a Adam and Eve type figures and the disc or a ball of humans at the top left, being created or an alluded to. 
Like is paintings, his art is has a positive side to the darkness, or the artist could be allowing the viewer to see safety or "light" in the darkness as most people do in times of trouble or strife. 

The monumental Art Deco style, a lot of times using allegory and myths in their public sculptures, leans to this style. A great piece by this Greek artist of the mid 20th Century.
