Fishing Boats in Malta

Ok, so firstly an appology for the error in yesterday’s POTD – the main subject of the image weren’t actually balconies – they were louvered windows.  There were a couple of balconies in the photo (red ones – in the middle) so I was at least parly right.  Look… it was late… I was tired….

Ok, on to todays photo.  These are traditional Maltese fishing boats.  Painted in traditional colours.  The eye motif which is very common on boats in Malta is symbol of protection and the origin of it can be traced back to ancient Egypt.  The eye of Horus, possibly.
