EDITORS COMMENTS
The print captures a dramatic painting titled "Attack of the Saracens on the Island of Malta defended by the knights, 1565". Created by an Italian artist in the mid-17th century, this masterpiece measures 99 x 74 cm and is housed in the Museum of Fine Art in Malta. The image showcases a fierce battle scene between Muslim warriors and the Knights Hospitaller, also known as the Order of Malta. Intricately detailed brushstrokes bring to life this historical event that took place on the island of Malta in 1565. The knights valiantly defend their territory against a relentless onslaught from Saracen forces. This clash represents not only a military conflict but also a collision between different religious beliefs - Islam and Christianity. The composition exudes energy and chaos as swords clash, arrows fly through the air, and soldiers engage in hand-to-hand combat. Amidst all this turmoil, one can observe elements symbolizing both sides: buckwheat representing Christian faith and Islamic symbols signifying Muslim religion. This artwork serves as a testament to human resilience and determination when faced with adversity. It reminds us of past struggles for power, land, and religious dominance while highlighting how art has preserved these stories throughout history. Leonard de Selva's skillful photography allows us to appreciate every intricate detail captured within this remarkable painting from centuries ago.
