Pages from my Greek Holiday

Images taken from a church booklet. The bottom left image is a used matchbox picked up discarded in a graveyard.

The vivid purple is mulberry berry stain. There was an abundance of them in a remote hillside monastery garden. They were delicious! The monastery was built over a sacred spring so there's spring water on that left page too, and candle wax. There was a field of very smelly goats nearby, hence the stamp. The sketch was made in a local harbour.

Larissa theatre, church shrine, Mycenae entry ticket. The number 5 was drawn around a metal number found in a graveyard. Those splotches on the right are where the candle wax came through from the next page.

Museum objects.

Lots of mixed up images of things here to represent things I did or saw. The stone with the natural hole I found on a beach.
