Of all the pictures that Mr.Wahio has given us to look at, these latter are certainly the most beautiful, the most full of meaning, because they show the enduring link which unites the sea with earthlings, who could not live without her. The sea does not change - let us believe the lesson from this book. She is many- sided and she is elusive, she is divine and she is human. Whatever we are, wherever we are, we are her children.
―J.M.G. Le Clézio
