Description

While I was painting this I was listening to a poetry programme on the wireless. Mention was made of the old belief that drowned sailors wandered the oceans forever in the shape of sea-birds. So there was the title for my painting.
I don't think there are any rocks on King Island that look like this, but they suited the mood I wanted to express.
