Our logo is inspired by Tholos’ magnificent structure and it’s mythical and historical context, all elements of Greek creativity past and present.
The Tholos together with the temple of Asklepion and the Abaton arcade comprised the main buildings of the classical Sanctuary of Asclepius. Studies expose architectural associations supporting that they were designed to work together and were bound by strong religious connotations.
According to myth, Zeus struck Apollo by thunderbolt and displaced him in the realm of Hades, however he was still allowed to continue healing people from his underground seat.
The Abaton was where patients were put into a nurturing sleep, during which Apollo restored their health. The experience was an imitation of death, a temporary descent in the kingdom of Hades, forced by the very character of the Epidaurian healing, bound to the subterranean element of Askeipios.
The Tholos’ round ground plans which were common to burial monuments; an underground labyrinth; and the fact that Cristian texts call it a tomb are the only proofs supporting the interpretation of the Tholos as the simulation of the underground dwelling of the god.
There is also a theory that the Tholos at Epidaurus is an astronomical monument, something that does not feel entirely peculiar if we consider that the Sanctuary was a holistic health centre par excellence.
