Freediving for food or resources such as pearls and coral dates back to 4500 BCE. Since then, our ability to survive below the surface has radically evolved with many technological leaps along the way. One of the earliest types of equipment for underwater exploration was the diving bell, which evolved into surface supplied diving helmets attached to a waterproof suit in the early 19th century. They were supplied with compressed air by manually operated pumps and made underwater projects much more practical. Many developments followed, with a major leap coming in the form of the Aqua-Lung, invented by two Frenchmen in 1943 as the first open-circuit SCUBA system to reach worldwide and commercial success.

The original painting was created on stained birch wood panel using only three colors of acrylic paint, which gives the work a monochromatic theme of warm greys and creams and have the feel of a black and white photograph steeped in history. The long limbed characters are crafted using hundreds of hand-torn bits of kraft paper collaged on top of watercolor paper and painted with an acrylic wash.
