Sea Legends

Long ago, Earth was dominated by supernatural spirits living in the oceans. Man however, lived in perfect harmony with them, thanks to a sacred alliance he concluded with the marine mammals.

Today however, throughout the world, exist ethnic minorities whose daily lives continue to bear witness to contemporary myths : these legends are their faith, and the animals, their gods.

From the shark tamers of the Pacific to the crocodile hunters of the Australian reef, "Sea legends" reveals the most wondrous of beliefs which unite man and nature in the spectacular, thousand-year old fulfilment of a magical destiny.
