Street corner, Valletta, Malta, 2011

In 1569, Grand Master Pinto del Monte, in order to embellish the then new city of Valletta, issued an edict directing owners of buildings at street corners to ornament them. Many of them erected statues of saints, said to ward off evil. I photographed this saint from the side it is illuminated at night by a garland of light bulbs. The surrounding buildings reflect the five hundred year old history of this city.
