Description:
Seascape with the silhouette of two large hands emerging from the water, holding a five-sailed ship. The silhouette of a nude woman is visible in the water, facing down and seeming to swim to the right. On the left, two smaller silhouettes stand, facing each other, as a wave breaks on the shore to their immediate right. Stylized clouds/smoke rise up through the sky in the center
