Artist's Description

The view across the bay to the Village of Nimborio, the only settlement on the Greek Island of Halki (Chalki). In the centre of the shot, the church of Agios Nikolaos (built in 1861) has the highest bell tower in the Dodecanese.

The church of Agios Nikolaos is also famous for its wonderful mosaic courtyard, created with the use of black and white pebbles known as Cholkakia Mosaics. This method has been used in the Dodecanese since Byzantine times.

Halki is a small, charming island, part of the Dodecanese Group, situated opposite the west coast of Rhodes.
