The Ocean bowl suite is one of Erté's Most impressive achievement In objects of art. Who else but this remarkable genius could have conceived such perfection? Using bowls as metaphors for the earth, Erté fantasized a myth of creation. The god and goddess of the oceans are depicted by Erté as a male (Adam) in Ocean I, and as a female (Eve) in Ocean II.

Just as life emerged from water, these mythical figures emerge with their stylized attendants that provide a repetitive motif for the bowls. The waves of the ocean are illustrated by the scalloped sides of the bowl. The decorative design on the outside of both Ocean I and II present Erté's view of sea vegetation. The seven heads on Ocean II represent the seven seas of the world.

For Erte there was more to these pieces than his myth of creation. For him, the ocean was a great source of energy. As he once wrote: "The sea has always been a wonderful inspiration for me I can't live without seeing the ocean for a long time. Every year, I spend two months in Barbados and two months in Majorca and my best ideas are born In these two places."
