Vassos Falireas is a contemporary Greek sculptor who was born in Athens (1905-1979). In 1929 he graduated with a Distinction Grade from the Fine Arts School of Athens and the next year he left for Paris. He stayed there for six years and presented his works at several exhibitions, earning a silver and a gold medal. He was widely recognized and he made sculptures for several important personalities of French public life. Many of his works were ruined during the Second World War. Apart of his works as a sculptor he was also responsible for the design of many modern Greek coins. Returning to Greece, he was honored with the Golden Cross of George A in 1965 while in 1955 he created/designed the monument of Leonidas the Spartan found in Thermopylae. In January 1967 he became a member of the French Academy of Fine Arts.
