The paradox of Theseus’s ship

The paradox of Theseus’s ship is a philosophical issue. Imagine that your ship has left the port. At sea, all hundred wooden parts of your ship will be replaced by metal ones. When your ship sails into the next port, is it still the same ship?

This paradox is a metaphor for the person’s identity, a recurring theme in my work. In the photo’s below you can see how I compose a picture. The ship, the Hollandia, I photographed on Terschelling last year when it was lying on dry land.
