12 Two Symbolical Fish…


A cord ties these two symbolical fishes together. The upper fish has broken away from the familiar environment and, driven by its thirst for knowledge, is venturing into the unknown. The rectangle with waves between the fishes is the source – the idea of all things living. The lower fish is in the streaming waters of its familiar surroundings.

“Aren’t these fishes a symbol of the eyes? Two fishes heading in different directions! Two fishes tied by a cord.

“The idea of primordial water as the source of every living thing.”
