Artist's description:

'Pearls Seller and Ama Diver'. 2016. Acrylic on canvas. 120x90cm.

Japan's female ama divers are the stuff of legend.
Ama uminchu or "sea woman" are Japanese divers, famous for collecting pearls.
The tradition of ama diving dates back centuries, with references to these "women of the sea" first recorded around 5,000 years ago.
It was in the years following World War II that many Westerners first learned of these real-life mermaids - who in those days wore nothing more than a loincloth and diving mask
