In the image, we see a rendering of the water surface from a highly resolved LES-VoF simulation of a hydraulic jump. The snapshot captures the dynamic complexity of the flow in the roller region of the jump, and swarms of entrained air bubbles are visible. A paper boat is added to the scene, reflecting the broader context of the research, which is ship drag reduction achieved by embedding air cavities into the hull of the vessel.

The boat appears to be plunging into the calamity of the flow in the roller. This connects the imagery to the poem excerpt on the right. The verse is taken from "The Sail" by Mikhail Lermontnov, one of Russia's most beloved poets. Through the metaphor of a lonely vulnerable boat seeking a fight with a storm, the poet reflects on the human quality of failing to be satisfied with the status quo and endlessly struggling to reach new frontiers.
