Marsaxlokk fishing village
The Maltese fishing village Marsaxlokk is a popular tourist attraction with its fine fish-restaurants, quaint Mediterranean limestone houses, and the traditional bright colors of the small fishing boats.
Notice the fishing boats in this picture:
Fishing boats in Malta are painted in a special way, in a bright blue base color, with stripes of for example yellow or red, and they are kind of a national icon. The colors of the stripes tell which region the boats are from.
Quote Desmond Morris, anthropologist and artist:
“To visit a Maltese fishing village is like entering a huge, open-air art exhibition”
Many Maltese fishing boats also have the symbol of an eye in the stern. This is supposed to protect the fishermen out at sea.
Please note that this picture has been enlarged to fit the size of the canvases and that is it therefore not as detailed as a photograph, but the level of details matches the structure of canvas quite nicely. However, this kind of canvas print is best suited viewed from a bit of distance. Like when it is hanging over a couch, like in the product picture above. It will not be as well suited with a shorter viewing distance, like for example a narrow hall-way.
