The sounds that you hear under water are amplified, although they are certainly more delayed. It takes much longer for a sound wave to travel through the water to your ears than it does in air, even though that is relatively slow.

This figure is floating, listening. She is detecting underwater sounds, and will transmit them on surfacing to the rest of the world, although...it is doubtful we will ever receive them in the same way that she does.

Oil on large walnut wood panel, 28 x 42 x 2.5 inches, built hollow, in StephenArts style in my own shop, with support struts that keep the surface absolutely flat. You can hold this painting up with your pinky finger in the back, it's so light weight, because it's like a box kite. The sides are painted black. It's meant to be hung flat on the wall and protrude into the room.

It was, however, sold in 2016. If someone likes this, I am tempted to paint it again.
