Footnotes

  • Ilias Lalaounis (1920_) has received many prizes for his art with the most important being that of the French Academy of Fine Arts in 1990, as the only jeweller ever to be elected as its member. In the fifties he studied and revived ancient Greek designs in gold and silversmithing techniques.
