A timeworn boat lies at the bottom of a body of water. The vessel isn’t, however, forever submerged. Indeed, the ship appears above the surface of the water every day as the tide steadily moves out and then begins to disappear from whence it came as the current changes direction. It’s during this window when the wreck is above the waterline that something truly remarkable happens.

Amazingly, some oversized, outstretched human fingers and a slender womanly arm slowly but surely come into view as the water recedes. And the features’ incredibly realistic appearance is all the more extraordinary because they’re set against the vessel’s decaying hull.

Later an upturned face emerges from the water to complete the image of a seemingly peaceful – and enormous – woman caressing the air around the ship. She has her eyes closed, and her hair flows down into the water.
