"Gastof mending the nets"
Gastof had been a fisherman from the islet near Marseilles, he had sailed over the Ette de Berre Lagoon and there had been a treacherous storm where the ship was strewn up on the beach at Marseilles. Gastof and his two Siamese cats managed to float ashore and were saved, but Gastof was bereaved as he lost all his family in the shipwreck. He lived in a stone cottage near the seashore and began to sculpt and paint pictures but had become 'mute' from the sad loss of all his family.
