As the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily is rich in culture and home to a diverse range of incredible landscapes. This is a place that has been influenced by multiple groups over time including the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, French, Germans, Spanish, Italians and the British. This diversity of people and intricate history has left its marks on the Sicilian culture, including the architecture, cuisine, language and energy of the island. The design has been influenced by the colours and patterns of Sicilian pottery and ceramics. In the foreground is a drawing of a girl inspired by a ceramic pot in the hidden gem that is Palermo tile museum. In the background the temple of Segesta can be seen, which is considered to be one of the best examples of Doric architecture in the world.
