Artist's Description

A long, long time ago, Santorini experienced massive earthquakes then an incredibly huge explosion, many times larger than Krakatoa’s, and the resultant tsunami spelt the end of the Minoan civilization, some distance away on Crete.
So, when Satorini experienced its serious earthquake in 1956, many locals were worried. This photo shows the remains of homes from that event, after 50 years, still left unrepaired. A sobering reminder that times of peace and tranquility are mere pauses to the Gods of the Underworld.
