These amphoras at the bottom, of course, are not an archaeological value. They were created and flooded by the forces of the nearby dive centers at a depth of 8-10 meters specifically to attract tourists. In addition, they serve as an excellent refuge for fish and a convenient home for corals.
The artwork was painted for four dives. While I was engaged in fixed objects, a few stingrays, and a huge phlegmatic fish, Napoleon, almost the size of me, watched my work. But they refused to pose for me. My reliable friends-lionfishes rescued me. It seems I have with them some kind of supernatural connection. Wherever I appear with an underwater easel, they come out of their shelter, spread their gorgeous wings and poisonous fins in front of me, and begin their slow, fascinating dance.
