Stunning dioramas reveal the horror that lurks in the deep unknown sea, thanks to a Japanese hobbyist.

Thalassophobia is a specific fear of the sea.

Licensed counsellor Anissa Hanson, Ph.D., said thalassophobia isn’t really associated with the water itself. The fear, she explains, isn’t just of water but of the vast emptiness of large bodies of water and the creatures that live there.

There are three types of water phobia: swimming, travelling on the water, or the fear of being far away from land while in the water.

You could be suffering from thalassophobia without realizing it if you haven’t read about it. The fear of the ocean is often generalized, but a deep fear of dark and deep waters is more specific. Ocean mysteries can bring shivers down the spine for just about anyone, the thought of it lying underneath you and not knowing what lies beneath is awe-inspiring.

Are you afraid of the ocean and all its mysteries? You might discover the truth by looking at these images.

According to Dr. Hanson, fear triggers the body to quickly react to a threat. “Under normal circumstances, this fear trigger corresponds to the level of threat.”

An over-reaction to a fear trigger may lead to a phobia if inadequate coping skills are not developed.”

Most phobias are formed during childhood due to a maladaptive response to something or someone. However, Coping in this manner can lead to increased stress and anxiety.
