In 2004 “KARPONTINI BROS - NAXIAN MARBLES UNL.” in cooperation with the German sculptor and professor Wolf Bröll and the “KONTOPIDIS & SONS UNL” marble factory propose to the municipality of Naxos to cooperate for the creation of a sculpture which will adorn Naxos’s harbor and specifically the road to Portara (Great Door).
“KARPONTINI BROS - NAXIAN MARBLES UNL.” offers the raw material and “KONTOPIDIS & SONS UNL.” the equipment for the marble processing. The proposition is greeted by the municipality of Naxos and in June 2004 Wolf Bröll arrives in Naxos.
Since August 2004 the sculpture “Ariadne on Naxos” stands by the road to the island’s most significant archaeological site, Naxos’s Portara, in reminiscence of Ariadne’s passage from the island and the great impact of the marble in this land’s history.
