Artist's Description

The church of Agios Nikolaos (built in 1861) in the harbour front of the village of Nimborio on the Greek Island of Halki (Chalki). It 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 yet very charming island, part of the Dodecanese group of Greek islands, situated opposite the west coast of the Island of Rhodes.
