Der The Kings of the Hellenes was patron of the 'Alexander Order' from 1947 to 1964. His son andinheritor, the ex-King Konstantin II has been living for decades with his family in exile in Great Britain.

The OAG, which supports in Clarence, New York (USA) and Alexander Garden, has one edition of this portrait, which shows "Alexander in his beauty". The bust is available in a stricktly limited edition in bronze, as well as in a variation made from barble mixture. The proceeds from the sales of the bust will be used for the upkeep of the Alexander Garden, as well as for memorial events regarding this historic personality.
