Artist's Description

The dove of peace on top of the war memorial at Gialos (or Yialos) harbour in the town of Symi on the beautiful Greek Island of Symi.

It commemorates the surrender of the Dodecanese Islands to Allied forces by the German forces at the end of World War 2. The surrender was concluded in one of Symi’s waterfront tavernas.

On the rockface behind the memorials is a carving of a trireme (an ancient Greek ship), a replica of the carving which lies at the base of the Lindos Acropolis on Rhodes.

Symi is a member of the Dodecanese group of Greek islands and lies 24 nautical miles to the north east of the Island of Rhodes.

Camera: Canon EOS 450D (Digital Rebel XSi in the USA)
