Hvar has its own super-hero, in the shape of a comic character called LAVANDERMAN! His supernatural power in the fight against mosquitoes, moths, insomnia, headaches and dizziness comes from lavender, so he truly symbolizes the magic of Hvar. The idea for this island superman came to Toni Bobanović and Vančo Rebac one day in Jelsa's zaniest art gallery, Dalmacijaland. Under Toni's watchful eye the character and his story came into being, and were brought to life visually by comic book artist Vančo.
The Dalmacijaland Gallery is situated in a charming narrow alley. A placard on the waterfront will guide you to it, with the enticing promise that it has all sorts of wonderful things which are not to be found in other shops - coupled with the warning that if you don't have a sense of humour, there's no point going there!
