Holy Mary statue
Acciaroli, Salerno, Campania, Italy, 2011 - Acciaroli is a tiny fishermen village on the Tyrrhenian Sea. At the mouth of its harbor stands a statue of Holy Mary built by the faithful fishermen as a defender of their lives. From the right hand of the statue hang many rosary beads, put there in times of storms and rough sea as a plea to God to make possible for the fishermen to come back safe. The statue is big and the hand is far away from the base, so that is must be difficult to put something there, especially with bad weather.
