Photographer's Note

A scene at Marsaxlokk's fishing harbour, Malta.
Marsaxlokk is Malta’s largest fishing village accommodating 250 registered fishing vessels, these colourful boats come in a diverse range of shapes and sizes ranging from the large modern “skuna”, the medium sized traditional maltese boat “luzzu” to the small “fregatina” (rowing boat). Despite the different sizes and ages of the boats, all the boats are painted in the traditional colours of yellow, blue and green, many of them have the “eyes of Osiris” on the prow of the boat.
