Artist's Description

Sunset over the Grand Canal in Venice, Italy on 20th September 2009. On the left is the Cathedral ‘Santa Maria della Salute’ (built 1631).

The Salute is a vast, octagonal building with two domes and a pair of picturesque bell-towers at the back. Built on a platform made of 100,000 wooden piles, it is constructed of Istrian stone and marmorino (brick covered with marble dust). At the apex of the pediment stands a statue of the Virgin Mary who presides over the church which was erected in her honour. The façade is decorated with figures of Saint George, Saint Theodore, the Evangelists, the Prophets, Judith with the head of Holofernes.

The whole of Venice and its Lagoon is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
