"The nurse with the white rose" has been adorning one side of the Tzaneio hospital on Afentouli and Zanni streets in Piraeus for a few days now .

The imposing white rose mural behind the street artist Hambas is to be completed on Wednesday and was created in honour of the health workers who have been fighting the COVID-19 pandemic daily for two years.




The rose symbolizes the hope and medicine used by the goddess Aphrodite in mythology.

Works like this exist in other hospitals in the country, such as the AHEPA in Thessaloniki, where a large mural on the front depicts an overworked nurse with a mask and right next to it is the message "Thank you".
