Artist's Description

As promised to Gilberte, this is a collage of some of the beauty spots you see on your way down the Lunzjata Valley in Kercem, Gozo. Starting from top left, you can see the Arched entrance to the Valley and the statue of St Joseph at the entrance. Next you can see the Chappel of the Annunciation and the stone bench behind the Chappel offering a peaceful rest in the shade. Below left is the spring which supplies the valley with water. Next is a picture of a ‘Hannewija’-Bear’s Breeches- (Acanthus mollis) , one of our beautiful wild plants frequently found in valleys. Next is a set of steps cleverly built into a rubble wall and next to it a picture of steps dug out in the solid rock a few hundred years ago, leading into and out of the valley, on the opposite side of the Chappel. Underneath is an example of water channels dug out in stone-blocks used to carry water to the fields since ancient times, when pipes were unheard of. Far right is an example of our ’Farfett tal-Kabocci-Large White Butterfly-Pieris brassicae, a once very common butterfly , but steadily on the decrease because of the use of pesticides. Bottom left is an entrance to a small cave dug out right next to a larger natural one shown in the next picture. Last picture, bottom right ,shows the real start of the Valley. It is all privately owned land. A beautiful converted Farmhouse and the base of a wind-operated water pump can also be seen.
