Santorini, one of the most famous and beautiful islands, in the world. A classic example of traditional cycladic architecture with dynamic curves and many different levels. Sunset's light playing with the white surfaces, creating stunning shades of gold. 

---THE TECHNIQE--- 
From prehistoric time until nowadays people use different materials for the creation of plaster. One of its usages was as an insulating material for the internal walls of the buildings, against weather conditions. These walls were the vehicle, where the artists put on their colors and created all these works of art that we still admire. 

The mortar consists of materials that were always used by technicians, lime, marble dust, pumice, water. Ferrous minerals colors are used on a plaster of one centimeter thickness. The result of the entire procedure is unique and impressive.
