“Everything comes from the sea and everything returns to it. It is a place of birth, transformation and rebirth. With its tides, the sea symbolises a transitory condition of uncertainty, doubt and indesicion which can end well or ill. Hence the sea is an image simultaneously of death and of life.”

 

 - Jean Chevalier & Alain Gheerbrant
