Only 13 of the crew of 24 were rescued. The wreck was lifted in chunks in 2015 and transported to Waalhaven in Rotterdam where the photo was taken that was the basis for the bas-relief.

Europa

2015
Bas-relief in salvaged wood #107, 168 x 168 x 14cm.
Private collection, Rotterdam, Netherlands.



Europa is one of the moons of Jupiter and it was discovered in 1610 by Galileo Galilei. It is slightly smaller than the Moon, and has a water-ice crust striated by cracks and streaks. It has the smoothest surface of any known solid object in the Solar System which led to the hypothesis that a water ocean exists beneath it, which could conceivably serve as an abode for extra-terrestrial life – a prospect that has made Europa a candidate for a future visit by probe.
