The Wave Maker • print


The inspiration for this watercolor painting came from a local legend (Olhão, Portugal) and its protagonist, a mythical being named Arraúl. He was the last surviver of Atlantis and created the islands of Algarve all by himself by carrying the soil from a nearby mountain (Cerro da Cabeça) to the sea. It is said that he built a subterranean city in the caves of that mountain. Arraúl lived as a seamen and grilled sardines underwater! He was so strong he could raise huge boats and their crews with one hand and with the greatest of ease.
