Ghost Ship Series Pirate Shipwreck
Digital Art - Digital Painting
Every shipwreck is a time capsule, and each artifact can tell us a story. Rest assured, history conceals a lot of pirate stories. Underwater explorer Barry Clifford and his team were able to locate Whydah, the only verified pirate shipwreck, off Cape God in the Pacific Ocean. For the past two decades, they have been recovering and researching her treasures. Whydah, whose captain was legendary Sam Bellamy, is known to have been one of the most advanced ships of her days, originally a slave ship subsequently remade into a pirate vessel. Whydah sank in a storm in 1717 with bounty from over 50 captured ships. To that end, this picture is about the romance of the sea and pirate treasures lost and found, and about sea mysteries solved and unsolved.
