The Five Deeps discovered a huge beautiful stalked Ascidean drifting with the currents of the deep sea trenches, a previously unseen and unknown creature.
On first sight I imagined I saw the head of a polar bear that glided across the screen with majesty and a solemn gracefulness.
This is painted in the context of imagining the 'Limiting Factor' submersible hovering just in sight and reflected on its gelatinous body in deep blue colours and the marine snow of the Ursa Minor and Ursa Major star constellations on the canvas - this is the Ursa (Bear) of the Deep.
