Part I

1859-1888/9 GREEK OLYMPIC (OLYMPIAN) GAMES. A few words about the 1859-1889 Olympic (Olympian) Games: In 1830, along with the re-instatement of Greece as free country, Greeks seemed to recollect their ancient history, especially from Classical years, and wanting to honor the ancient Greek phrase “Νοῦς ὑγιὴς ἐν σώματι ὑγιεῖ” translated as “Healthy mind exists, in a healthy body”, started forming the groundwork to revive the ancient Olympic Games. Some initiatives as follows: - 1833, Poem of Panagiotis Soutsos, (intellectual, poet of the time) “Dialogue of the Dead”, where he clearly proposes the revival of the ancient Olympic Games. - 1834, Panagiotis Soutsos sends a formal proposal to Ioannis Kolettis, minister of internal affairs of Greece, asking the same. - 1835, after P.Soutsos’ proposal, I. Kolettis, by his “Memorandum of the instituting of National celebrations and public games on the model of Antiquity, submits a formal proposal to King Othon. - 1837, Royal Decree signed by Queen Amalia, formally gives shape to what the Games would look like. - 1838, the municipality of Letrina (today’s municipality of Pyrgos, near Olympia) proposed to hold Olympic Games on March 25th honoring Greece’s national celebrations. It is said, that Evangelis Zappas was inspired by the work of P.Soutsos, and decided to revive the ancient Olympic Games himself, proposing it to king Othon, and funding them completely by himself. This lead to acceptance, and ultimately, the revival of the ancient Olympic Games which were held in Athens from 18591889 became a reality. The Olympian Games consisted of two parts, an exhibition held in Zappeion Megaron (Mansion), as well as the athletic Games held in Ludwig sq. (now Omonia sq.) in1859, and in the Games after that, in the Panathenaic stadium where the Olympic Hymn (composed by Orfanidis) and athlete’s oath would be heard. The Olympian Games were accepted with great excitement by national and international press, as well as societies who promoted the benefits of physical education (e.g. Wenlock, a committee of gentlemen in England, initiated in 1850 who held their own local athletic games, the Wenlock Olympian Games) and praised and supported the initiative for revival of Olympian Games, and the start of modern Olympic Games as they mentioned them (The London Review, Sept. 15, 1860).

The temporary wooden Zappeion building, where the exhibition part of the Olympian Games were held until 1875.

Athens 1896, 1st International Olympic Games 15.

15. The Winner Diploma of the Olympic Games. By Nikolaos Gyzis

(Greek: Νικόλαος Γύζης. German: Nikolaus Gysis. 1 March 1842 – 4 January 1901) was considered one of Greece’s most important

19th-century painters. He was most famous for his work Eros and the Painter, his first genre painting. He was the major representative of the so-called “Munich School”, the major 19th-century Greek art movement. From 1886 onward he was professor at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich.50.5x73.5cm (19.88”x28.93”).

The diploma of the Olympic Games, which is ranked among the culminating achievements of European graphic arts, was commissioned by the renowned painter Nikolaos Gyzis (1842-1901). This choice was due to a proposal by Dimitrios Vikelas. Gyzis himself, in a letter of 20 March 1896, describes the diploma: ‘In the middle and top of the diploma, a distant view of the ruins of the Parthenon, above which flies the Greek flag, around the Parthenon a torchlit process, of which only flames and smoke are visible.  Behind the ruins, dispersing the thick smoke, a great phoenix rises up.  In the foreground right, the Wingless Nike animated again, as a beautiful and alive statue and holding an olive branch, as if making an objection to Hellas seated opposite.  She stops in her tracks as she runs, so as not to disturb her, listening to Time behind her to an anthem of the old splendid age and sunk in memory.  The owls fly from the ruins and one of Athena’s comes to sit beside Hellas.  On the relief between Hellas and Nike, I represent the Olympic Games [...] My description is ugly, I hope my painting will be lovelier.  The Specific Diploma was awarded to Georgios Streit Secretary of the 1896 Olympic Organizing Committee (18631948. Lawyer, University professor, Greek Minister of Foreign Affairs etc.) Georgios Streit as well as Dimitrios Vikelas were vey close to King Constantine, and were awarded with the Diploma, for their significant role and contribution in the 1896 Olympic Games by King Constantine himself, and he is the one who signs both their diplomas with his monograph. Item is included in bibliography and recognized by the Greek Culture Ministry. This Unique item is in absolutely stunning condition. The ink used has faded to a degree, but everything from G. Streit’s name as well as King Constantine’s handwriting and monograph is still visible.

Absolutely stunning rarity. EF ($ 40,000)

Maria Hors during a torch lighting ceremony in Olympia

178. Old Style High Priestess dress of the legendary “Maria Hors”. This is the first dress Maria Hors

wore, since she undertook to be the high-priestess and choreographer of the torch-lighting ceremonies. Maria Hors (1921-2015) was herself a symbol of the Olympic Movement. Since 1964 and for about 40 years, Maria Hors was the choreographer of all of the flame-lighting ceremonies in the ancient stadium at Olympia. She shaped the artistic part of these ceremonies as nobody else has done since the torch relay concept was conceived and implemented for the first time in 1936, when she also took part as a young girl in the very first flame-lighting ceremony at Olympia. Dress is worn on many torch-lighting ceremonies until the new style dresses appeared. It is used with traces of wear but in good overall condition. Hand made. Maria Hors’ name is stitched on the dress.
