  1. 1. The art of Nigel Cox superimposed to a Maltese background<br />The original <br />art of <br />Nigel Cox……<br />superimposed by me<br />to a Maltese background<br />Better go to this site for utmost viewing:-<br />http://www.slideboom.com/presentations/409053/The-art-of-Nigel-Cox-superimposed-to-a-Maltese-background.<br />Click to advance…..<br />
  2. 2. Filfla is a small, barren, uninhabited islet  5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south of Malta, and is the most southerly point of the Maltese Archipelago.  Filfla has an area of just 15 acres and is a crumbling flat-topped limestone plateau surrounded by 60 metre high cliffs. The only known permanent structure on it was a chapel built inside a cave in 1343, which was destroyed by an earthquake in 1856 that also sank part of the island.<br />Until 1971 the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force used the island for target practice. It became a bird reserve in 1980.<br />The original <br />art of <br />Nigel Cox……<br />superimposed by me<br />to a Maltese background<br />
  3. 3. Properly called St. Agatha’s Tower or Fort St. Agatha – this, the most impressive of Malta’s many towers. The Tower was begun by Grand Master Juan de Lascaris-Castellar around 1646 and completed by 1649. In the 18th Century bastions were added and the Fort was manned throughout both World Wars.<br />The original <br />art of <br />Nigel Cox……<br />superimposed by me<br />to a Maltese background.<br />
  4. 4. Mdina, CittàVecchia, or CittàNotabile, (English: Notabile, or Imdina) is the old capital of Malta. Mdina is a medieval walled town situated on a hill in the centre of the island. Punic remains uncovered beyond the city’s walls suggest the importance of the general region to Malta’s Phoenician settlers. Mdina was inhabited and possibly first fortified by the Phoenicians around 700 BC.  Under the Roman Empire Malta became a Municipium and the Roman Governor built his palace in Mdina. Tradition holds that the Apostle St. Paul resided in the city after his historical shipwreck on the islands. <br />The original <br />art of <br />Nigel Cox……<br />superimposed by me<br />to a Maltese background.<br />
  5. 5. This is one of the De Redin Towers from a series of thirteen small fortified watch towers that Grand Master de Redin of the Knights of Malta built on the island of Malta between the year 1658 and 1659. The towers are in sight of each other, and provided a communication link between Gozo and Grand Harbour, in addition to functioning as watchtowers against attack by Corsairs.<br />The original <br />art of <br />Nigel Cox……<br />superimposed by me<br />to a Maltese background.<br />
  6. 6. Msida or Imsida is a harbour town in Malta with a population of around 7,623 . The patron saint of Msida is Saint Joseph while the protector is The Holy Conception.  <br />Msida became a parish in 1867. <br />The original <br />art of <br />Nigel Cox……<br />superimposed by me<br />to a Maltese background.<br />
  7. 7. The megalithic temples of Malta, dating from 5500 years ago are the oldest free standing stone structures of the world. They are on the prestigious list of World Heritage Sites and few countries in the world can claim to have pre-historic structures which are older than the Pyramids of Egypt and Stonehenge. Malta and Gozo have seven of these amazing structures.<br />The original <br />art of <br />Nigel Cox……<br />superimposed by me<br />to a Maltese background.<br />
  8. 8. Marsaxlokk lies in the Southeastern part of Malta. This is a beautiful fishing village and one of the oldest ports in Malta. Marsaxlokk stands as the second largest natural harbour of Malta. Fishing is the primary occupation of the Marsaxlokk people. This calm and serene village proudly exhibits its deep rooted traditions.<br />The original <br />art of <br />Nigel Cox……<br />superimposed by me<br />to a Maltese background.<br />
  9. 9. Dominating Palace Square, the Grand Master's Palace has always been the house of government in Malta, first by the knights, then the British and now hosts the President’s office.  In the interior of the palace is the famous Council Chamber, adorned with valuable Gobelins tapestries woven in France for Grand Master Ramón Perellos y Roccaf. The other rooms and passages of the palace are splendidly furnished with art objects, old coat of arms and armour.<br />The original <br />art of <br />Nigel Cox……<br />superimposed by me<br />to a Maltese background.<br />
  10. 10. Another sultry nightfall falls over the Maltese coastline, draping everything in mystery as has been the case for thousands of years.<br />The original <br />art of <br />Nigel Cox……<br />superimposed by me<br />to a Maltese background.<br />Hope you enjoyed the tour.<br />
