Tree Scuplture Draws Attention in Matala, Crete

Matala is a picturesque village famous for its caves and beautiful beaches of rare splendour, 75 km south-west of Heraklion on the Greek island of Crete.
Spyros Stefanakis, a Cretan artist, carved the wood of the huge tree to create a masterpiece, which stands at the entrance to the village.
The tree is carved in great detail to form fascinating images around the trunk. Stefanakis is a well-known sculptor not only within Crete but across Greece. His work has been exhibited all over the world, but the skilled craftsman and artist gave Matala a precious gift to inspire locals and visitors alike.
