Loukanikos: The riot dog
Place: Keramikos Artist: ????
Loukanikos (Λουκάνικος: the sausage loukaniko) has been present at nearly every recent protest in Athens in the past few years. This stray has ostensibly become the symbol of Greek protests against the IMF- and ECB-prompted austerity measures.
In September 2011, on the occasion of a striking policemen's union marching in the centre of Athens,Loukanikos, according to eyewitnesses,was "initially confused" between two opposite sides both of uniformed policemen but, when the riot police contingent attacked their striking colleagues, the dog sided with "those who were being attacked."
Loukanikos' health was "severely burdened" by the inhaling of tear gas and other chemicals during the many riots in which he participated but lived until approximately ten years of age, dying peacefully on 9 October 2014 at the home of a person who cared for him.
INO, the mural artist, said there was still room to convey social messages through commissioned work. He recently painted a large outdoor mural for an exhibition at the Onassis Cultural Center in Athens, depicting a woman’s face on paper being crushed with a hand. “The message is that man has become a slave of his creators,” he said.
