This fourteen-inch print is the stone-less grave of Bulkington.

A screen-printed poster of the final paragraph of the 23rd chapter of Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, Or The Whale, entitled “The Lee Shore.” The paragraph was hand-written in the form of the elusive parmacetty, and it reads as follows:

“But as in landlessness alone resides highest truth, shoreless, indefinite as God—so, better is it to perish in that howling infinite, than be ingloriously dashed upon the lee, even if that were safety! For worm-like, then, oh! who would craven crawl to land! Terrors of the terrible! is all this agony so vain? Take heart, take heart, O Bulkington! Bear thee grimly, demigod! Up from the spray of thy ocean-perishing—straight up, leaps thy apotheosis!”

This 14” x 8 ½” design is screen-printed using blue, water-based ink on a piece of acid-free paper.
