Painted In honor of the Ama healthy pearl diver mermaids of Japan. Ama, meaning ‘woman of the sea’ are amazing Japanese pearl divers. These women specialize in free diving up to 25 meters down into cold water without using oxygen tanks or other breathing equipment. Ama used special techniques to hold their breath for up to 2 minutes at a time; they would gather abalone, seaweed and other shellfish. It was a major theme for me in my work--healthy women in the ocean.
