Blood, sea

The illustration is inspired by the story “Blood, sea” from the book “Cosmicomics” by Italo Calvino. I was touched by a sentence from the book: “The conditions that obtained when life had not yet emerged from the oceans have not subsequently changed a great deal for the cells of the human body, bathed by the primordial wave which continues to flow in the arteries”.
