The ocean and its shipwrecks have always held a fascination for romantics and treasure hunters. The oceans around the world hold more than 3 million shipwrecks. Some are hundreds of years old and are often filled with treasures that sank with them. One such boat sank in 1941 when sunk by a German U-boat carrying 110 tonnes of silver on board.
This collage work, entitled “Treasure” 8“ x 16“ features a silver background. The beautiful mermaid is wearing her jewels of silver and pearls and diamonds. One can only imagine where she found these marvelous treasures under the sea!
You will find “Treasure” at the Art Emporium in Port Stanley. Summer hours begin June 1. The Emporium is open six days a week, closing only on Tuesdays. Hours run 11:00 am to 5:00 pm.
