Along with the rapid growth of tourism over the past two decades, different forms of art have emerged on the Island of Santorini.  Local artists market their scenic paintings of the island and unique sculptures made of volcanic rocks to the cruise ship tourists.  Jewelry shops are also profitable considering the fact that most of the tourists are couples and honeymooners. Tourism has supplanted fishing and agriculture as the top industry on the Island.
