Artist's Description

Kefalonia is an island full of mystery and “peculiar” places. One of them is Mellisani cave, on the eastern part of the island, the first “cabriolet” cave i’ve seen in my life. Its roof collapsed after an earthquake some 5.000 years ago. You can make a small tour by small boat.

The other strange thing about this cave is the water that’s running through it, which is half “sweet” and half “salty”. It is connected with another of the mysteries of the island. On the western part of the island, close to the town of Argostoli, there is a place called “Katavothres”, where in some point the waters of a small creek, suddenly get “swallowed” by the ground. For many decades people were trying to find out where this water was going. Someone came with the idea to throw tones of paint in it. Two weeks later, the painted water, appeared in the Melissani’s cave, on the opposite part of the island about 40 km away.
