Dolphins, some of the most fascinating sea creatures, are not only a symbol of friendship and solidarity but their role as hunters is crucial for maintaining the balance in the marine ecosystem as they eat the unhealthy fish, thus preventing infectious diseases from spreading.

The “Save Your Breath” event in Santorini (June 8th, 2018) was a long time dream for the Healthy Seas team and we wanted our visual communication to represent that. The Minoan dolphin mosaic depicts an abundnant marine scene which is the ultimate goal of the Healthy Seas Initiative.

The event’s artwork was created by internationally established visual designer, Charis Tsevis. The “Save Your Breath” visual, is a mosaic that consists of over 1,500 photographs from activities of the Healthy Seas Initiative from the past 5 years. The mosaic recreates the dolphin fresco found in Knossos in the late Minoan period. Minoan civilisation was born and developed in Crete 5000 years ago. Somewhere around 2000 and 1600 BC, the Minoans took over Santorini and settled in Akrotiri. One of the most common themes in Minoan art is nature.

A limited edition poster is available here. All proceeds will support the work of Healthy Seas!
