Paul Vrellis Greek History Museum
It is a life's work of the sculptor Pavlos Vrellis- a graduate of the Athens School of Fine Arts- who created it from scratch. In 1983, at the age of 60, he bought a barren space in Bizani, Ioannina (located in the 12th klm. of the Ioannina-Arta National Road).
He mapped streets and squares, built rock gardens, cobblestone streets and alleys, and erected after a lot of effort, thought and personal work a building of Urban Fortress Architecture of the mainland of Epirus of the 18th century. He transformed its interior in order to transform the visitor to his main subject, and therefore the subject of the History he represents.
All of his themes derive from this very- his- own heir. To bring events and personalities to life, he studied hard, collected museum material for more than 30 years, and created the figures he chose using wax to resemble human skin. Beneath it, there are emotions of well-known and anonymous heroes, unfolding over a period of two millenniums.
A unique feature of the place is its discovery by visitors, who will activate their cultivation, sophistication and knowledge in combination with their fertile imagination, to give life and identity to this work.
