The etched handwritten script on the bezel is a quote from Vincent Van Gogh: 'The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for staying ashore.' Life and the sea are risky ventures. Go to sea, accept that job, rise to that challenge, toss that gauntlet...it's all a gamble. Maybe your little ship founders and falls prey to the giant squid with all hands lost, or maybe the sailors make it to shore and start anew....I'd rather wrestle a giant squid, than never leave the harbor, at least I'll have tall tales to tell.
The giant squid is fashioned from Sculpy and the sailboat is made of birch bark with paper sails and a twig mast. The undersea waves are real lichen and the kelp is plastic foliage.The tiny epic(ish) tableau is protected and preserved in a 'sea' of strong, clear resin and measures 45 x 27 x 19mm. The setting is made of red brass and fits a size 8. The band is 10mm wide with a comfortable half round profile.
Jump overboard and swim like heck my friends....
