Star Trails Overhead the Statue of Mother

May 09, 2021


Photographer: Anthony Ayiomamitis

Summary Author: Anthony Ayiomamitis

The photo above showing star trails above the “Statue of Mother” was
taken during the summer of 2020, on the island of Aegina, Greece.
Polaris is the star at the center of the concentric circles. This
13 ft (4 m) tall bronze statue was sculpted by Christos
Karpalou and represents a mother patiently awaiting the safe return of
her son from abroad. A similar but much smaller copy of the statue can
be found at the island's cemetery, overlooking the grave of the
sculptor's mother. Note that my car's floor mats were used to cover the
flood light facing the base of the statue. Click here to learn more
about the details of this image.
