"The sea is everything." --Jules Verne
Recorded in the Exeter Book, one of four surviving books of Old English Poetry, The Seafarer is a poem composed of significant sapiential material concerning the definition of wise men, the ages of the world, and the necessity for patience in adversity.
It is told from the point of view of an old seafarer, who is reminiscing and evaluating his life as he has lived it. It consists of 124 lines, followed by the single word, “Amen”.
Inspired by the deep textured blue of the ocean, this casket has been hand-brushed with 3 coats of milk paint followed by 2 coats of dark raw tung oil. The maritime inspired interior and handles make this a one-of-a kind historic shaped wooden casket.
