The concept is constructed through three Mediterranean Sea symbols: “Almadraba Anchors” – Bronze -: Inspired in the Almadraba Anchors from La Azohía (Cartagena, Spain). Almadraba is a Pre-roman Labyrinthine fishing art to capture red Tuna in their migrations / “Noray” – Bronze: Artisan mooring bollards from small fisherman ports / “Ribs”  Bronze -  Ribs of the hull of a Phoenician commerce boat.

Words that express what these symbols meant for individuals of different nationalities have been engraved into the work. I.e. Almadraba Anchors: 地中海産赤マグロ (Mediterranean Red Tuna), I地中海アイコン (Mediterranean Icon), guardiana de tradiciones (traditions keeper), icono de un pueblo (icon of a town), ηρεμία (calmness) … Noray: moorage , trampolín (springboard), schönheit (beauty), tramonti (sunsets), chaise de pecheurs (fishermans seat) nyota uchunguzi (stars observatory), asiento de amantes (lovers chair), гол (finish line)  Ribs : Beauty, ruhe (peace)…
