I was on Red Sea, on holiday on a diving boat. Like every day! That morning, a boat guide accompanied me to snorkel on a reef. Once again, I saw the enchanted world that I have loved and respected so much since I was born. With a disposable camera, I took beautiful pictures. Towards the end of the tour, I notice a boy on the boat making agitated gestures towards a point. I turned around and saw a fantastic creature that was coming towards me at a distance of about 4 meters. It was like seeing an iron war machine aiming for me: Chills. I pressed the camera button and realized that I had finished the roll!
About 2 meters long, this iron-like fish turned a short distance from me and headed out towards the open sea. It was a scary and wonderful experience; that beautiful and majestic creature is still a clear memory today and to which I have given new life with this mosaic.
The mosaic was made using the direct technique on an old wooden board.
