Eye symbol on sentry box, Gardjola Gardens, Senglea, Malta. Artist: Matty Lawrence

Eye symbol on sentry box, Gardjola Gardens, Senglea, Malta. The Gardjola (sentry box), overlooking the harbour was built in the 16th century by the Knights of St John. Sculpted in high relief are symbols of unceasing vigilance: the eye, the ear, and the crane bird. The inscription in Latin assures the inhabitants of the harbour area to rest at ease, as the tower stands guard against any hostile force that may attempt to approach Maltese shores.
