Otherwise known as the Vergina Sun, or Argead Star, this royal symbol represented the Argead dynasty of the ancient Macedonian Kingdom, into which Alexander the Great was born.
This emblem was chosen as it represents the ‘strength in unity’, and filotimo, exhibited by the Matric class of 2020 and fellow Sahetians. The mosaic is assembled mainly with 5 cent coins along with other discontinued, Greek, and South African coins. These coins were donated by SAHETI learners, teachers, and parents, and have been repurposed to create this artwork.
The Prefects of 2019-2020 wish to thank the SAHETI alumnus who made a significant contribution to funding their initiative, completed by Mosaic Arts. The mosaic remains a captivating addition to SAHETI’s landscape.
