[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Luzzu is the traditional Maltese fishing boat. It is brightly painted in shades of yellow, red, green and blue, and the bow is normally pointed with a pair of eyes. These eyes may be the modern survival of an ancient Phoenician custom referred to as the Eye of Horus or of Osiris.
