Photographer's Note

Peculiar to Sykamnia is the small church of Panagia Gorgona (the Virgin Mary Mermaid) built on a strip of land which sticks out into the sea. It took its name from a wall painting by an anonymous folk painter which depicts the Virgin Mary with a mermaid's tail in a moving amalgam of religion and folk tradition
