Photographer's Note

So far in my life, I had seen something similar to that only once in my life, in the church of Taxiarches, in Milies village, Pelion Mountain. In Taxiarches you can see the Zodiac Circle depicted on a side wall, in the first hall of the church, surrounding a "person" called "Cosmos". Strange but somehow made some sense.

This time, in Mani region, I saw it again, and not just once, but twice, in "Aposkieri" (West) Mesa Mani, in a "private" monastery of the 16th century, Moni Dekoulou-Μονή Δεκούλου (where this photo was taken) and in "Prosiliaki" (East) Mesa Mani, in a monastery of the 14th century, Moni Sotiros (Μονή Σωτήρος ή Μονή Γωνέας). This time the Zodiac Circle surrounds the Pantocrator (Jesus Christ) on the roof of the churches, making it even more extraordinary and theologically inexplicable.
