The dorna and the ones who live from it.

Conde Corbal’s engravings...they introduce the collective aspects of the work of a sailor, the crafwork that involves the shipbuilding of the dorna and the simple beauty of its lines and shape in the water. But it also introduces the concern and distress that characterize the lives of seafarers. The elongated and tense faces show the long hours spent at sea, the danger of violent storms, and the alineation which involves a collective work, where people carry on their missions together, but they are always alone.
