The work is a symbolic modern interpretation inspired by a passage of the Bible. The work also refers to Rembrandt’s ‘The Storm on the Sea of Galilee’ (1632).

Matthew 8:24 And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep. 25 Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!”

26 But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. (New King James Version)
