VAGIS MUSEUMView on map
Polygnotos Vagis the sculptor (born 1892 in Potamia, Thassos - 1965 died in New York) was another famous 'son' of Thassos. He left the island during the Turkish occupation but always retained his roots, even signing his works 'The Thassian'. Shortly before his death he stated: "I leave all my works to the people and government of Greece with the proviso that they be placed in a national museum or library built by preference on the island of Thassos, the land of my birth". You can find the small museum next to the church in Potamia. It is well worth a visit.
