12) The left picture, "A Boy's Promise," is named after the near boat as an
aspiring youth looks on. The sailing vessel beyond reminds me of my boyhood camping days tacking a Sunfish which echoes the mast-sail lines of this "dhow."
A common lateen-rigged Arab sailboat, the dhow traditionally hauled spices,
dates, fish, and mangrove timber along the vast Indian Ocean coastline and
likely has roots in ancient Greek designs.
