In addition to the fine needlework and crocheting skills of the Zakynthian women, the churches in Zakynthos provide a great example of how the art of carving has flourished in Zante.
Both wood and silver carving have become popular in Zante since the 17th century. Most of the churches on the island are adorned with beautiful icon screens, carved in stone, silver and wood.
The church of Agios Dionisios, in Zakynthos Town, is home to some
impressive works of Zakynthian carving art. The icon screen and the
silver reliquary that holds the Saints body are inticately carved.
The Post-Byzantine Art Museum in Zakynthos Town offers a fantastic opportunity to see some of this beautiful local art.
