Phoenician Ship in a Storm

Artist's rendition of a Phoenician ship at sea during a storm. The Phoenicians were a great maritime people and often adorned their ships with horses' heads to honour Yamm, their god of the sea. Although Yamm could raise the seas to sink ships and send floods across the land, he could also help sailors reach their destinations safely and provided for the people of the land as long as they acknowledged and honored him.
