    This rich and highly complex image shows a diver being lowered from a cable onto the ocean floor. He is surrounded by mermaids, mermen, and numerous other sea creatures. The ship from which the diver has descended can be seen in the top right hand corner, while the telegraph cable is visible on the sea-bed.
