About the work

Once sailors sailed seven pristine seas, but now the seas are suffering.  Each seahorse reveals the percentage of man made pollution and contaminants found in the world’s most polluted seas.


Working with artist and teacher Tanya Coventry, students from Bowen State High School have united to collaborate on this piece, reflecting their passion of keeping our oceans alive.

* The caliber of work presented at Strand Ephemera 2019 was at such high standard that the judges wished to name a Highly Commended, along with the major award winner.
