The three ships with all the Antonio's riches are travelling. They must arrive to Venice. The Antonio's hair is like the turbulent waves of the sea during a storm.

About the story: Bassanio wants to impress Portia but he doesn’t have enough money to do so. He turns for help to Antonio, who is forced to borrow from Shylock, a Jewish moneylender. When Antonio’s business starts going badly, repayment becomes impossible and Shylock is allowed to demand a pound of the merchant’s flesh.
