Ocean Symbols: The Wave

The Sea Around Us, compares waves to dangerous monsters found in myths and legends. The ocean’s waves can consume a boat like the Titanic, flipping it over with powerful crashes, and pushing it down with force to the bottom of the sea. Waves can take away any mammal’s life, except for Dolphins, with just one strong hit. It can drown any non sea creature and keep pushing them away from land. The waves will hit against each other causing chaotic splashes and makes the ocean look frustrated and angry. As mentioned before, boat legends have these superstitions because of the ocean’s waves. If the ocean senses bad luck, it’ll act as the superstitions mentioned and start cooking waves to attack. When the waves act as a strong and powerful force in the ocean, it can leave anything helpless; destroying everything in its path. During tsunamis waves will destroy homes, wipe away memories, take lives, tear plants out of the ground, and leave the land littered in lost material and garbage. For our social practice project we will be collecting the garbage found on the sand before it reaches the ocean’s waves; preventing the litter from being carried away. Waves can symbolize a negative environmental impact when it comes to the ocean.
