Artist's Description

Patmos (Greek, Πάτμος) is a small Greek island in the Aegean Sea. Its main communities are Chora (the capital city), and Skala, the only commercial port.
The churches and communities on Patmos are of the Eastern Orthodox tradition. Patmos is mentioned in the Christian scriptural Book of Revelation. The book’s introduction states that its author, John, was on Patmos when he was given (and recorded) a vision from Jesus. Early Christian tradition identified this writer John of Patmos as John the Apostle. As such, Patmos is a destination for Christian pilgrimage. Visitors can see the cave where John is said to have received his Revelation (the Cave of the Apocalypse), and several monasteries on the island are dedicated to Saint John.
In 1999, the island’s historic center Chora, along with the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian and the Cave of the Apocalypse, were declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
The magenta flowers in the image are from the Bougainvillea plant, which you can find in many bright colours associated with the plant, including pink, magenta, purple, red, orange, white, or yellow.
