"Crete, Sea-Land" a public sculpture of Kitroplatia

"Crete, Sea-Land", sculpture of Kitroplatiais, is a public work of art by the brothers Nick and Pantelis Sotiriadis. It is also commonly known as "Amalthias Keras" (or Amalthias Horn"). The glass and steel work is located between Kitroplatia beach and the harbor at Agios Nikolaos on the Greek island of Crete. At night the glass glows from an internal light source.

 

Agios Nikolaos in eastern Crete is probably best known as a tourist town that serves as a hub to the twenty or so small villages and farms that make up this part of Lassithi. Tourism is mainly West European with Greek tourism concentrating in mid August.
