At many times in our lives, things are very rarely what they seem to be. We tend to look around, quickly form an opinion, and move on. But all that truly gives us is an often inaccurate version of reality.
This mysterious ca. 1898 work by famed ship portraitist Antonio Jacobsen breaks the mold of what we might think of ship portraits and challenges us to look deeper and ask questions in search of the truth. The world we might discover can hold truth, mysteries, surprises, adventure and so much more!
