Miles notes that, "This study was originally intended to be part of a Shell Series that Jacoulet hoped would continue before his untimely passing. Individual works such as this have gained an eager following in the past few years".

The South Seas prints were all created from sketches and paintings done between 1929 and 1936. As late as 1959, these early works were being carved to produce new prints. Since many were lost because of World War II bombing of Tokyo, several of them are among the rarest and most desirable of all the artist's oeuvre. - Miles, pg. 128
