Photographer's Note

A piece of art made with marble of Naxos in the "Fish and olive" pottery workshop.(http://www.fish-olive-creations.com)

Marble of Naxos: Greece is a country that has bestowed a number of incredible marble monuments and sculptures to the world. Being the first Greek island to work with marble, Naxos led the way in creating some fantastic and memorable structures. The island also gave birth to extremely skilled stone carvers and craftsmen who were highly sought after. The craftsmen of Naxos were the first to build entire structures of pure and unalloyed marble. (http://www.greeka.com/cyclades/naxos/naxos-products/naxos-marble.htm)
