Marsaxlokk Luzzu

Marsaxlokk is a traditional fishing village located in the south-eastern part of Malta.

A luzzu (pronounced like lwtsw in Maltese) is a traditional fishing boat from the Maltese islands. They are 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 (also practiced by the ancient Greeks); they are sometimes (and probably inaccurately) referred to as the Eye of Horus or of Osiris.
