Description of the artwork «Pirates with booty on Phi Phi Lei»

After the arrival of the Portuguese - and later the Dutch and English - in the Indian Ocean in the 16th century, everything changed in the region. The local foundations were destroyed. As a result, for several centuries the Indian Ocean became an area of uninterrupted maritime plunder.
