A pelican welcomes visitors to the waterfront of Mykonos. Mykonos is a Greek island of the Aegean, a member of the Cyclades Archipelago. Although the island is not mentioned in the New Testament, it is a place of deep history, a part of the Roman empire and contributor to the larger cultural milieu. Archaeologically, it was here that the famous "Mykonos vase" was found. On it, one of the earliest known depictions of the Trojan Horse (about 675-650 BC).*
As for the pelican, he's just looking for handouts.
