How many mysteries, how many legends and how many spells have found place in the depth of the sea and the ocean?
An uncountable number of stories have been written of what lies in this so alluring and mysterious place under the sea. Even today dreamers and writers remain fascinated by the underwater world.
It is no coincidence that such a talented writer as Julius Verne took his inspiration from the underwater world writing of the adventures of Captain Nemo who, aboard the Nautilus submarine, experienced many out of the ordinary vicissitudes.

It is true though, that human beings get shocked every time they discover something new about the underwater life. Where as all the inhabitants of the sea seem to already poses all the answers on the infinite mysteries of the sea.
Fish of every shape and color such as sea urchins and sea stars, crustaceans and mollusks, all participate in the wallowing game of the sea. They move and dance with every tide that rises and falls. The polyp a proud, stubborn and independent animal finds refuge in the vastness and darkness of the sea. The polyp is very intelligent as it silently scrutinizes the environment floating over rocks and cracks where it camouflages itself, listening to the sound of the sea.
It has eight tentacles with suckers which allow it to eject ink to defend itself from predators and to attack its prey.
These characteristics have lead men to interpret the polyp in different ways. For example, for the Greeks the polyp was the symbol of evil, in esotericism it was the symbol of the death’s embrace, in Japanese culture the agitated tentacles became the symbol of the greed of tyrannical regimes that were oppressing its people. But the polyp is also a symbol of the independence of individuals, the ability to protect themselves and their loved ones, the bond that releases man from negativity and the threats of life joining the most valuable circumstances.
