WHAT THE FISH WAS SILENT ABOUT
19" x 19"
Limited Edition Giclee Canvas: 325
The bottom of seas
and oceans conceals a multitude of secrets of fabulous treasures lost
with the sunken ships. Itís even hard to imagine how many antique
Spanish galleons which transported gold treasures of the New World,
sank on their way home. But a fish in a picture couldnít reveal the
secrets of hidden American gold. Clad in heavy armor of coins instead
of scales, it sank to the bottom too. We see the fish lying beside a
jug with precious coins covered with gold sand... Though separately
these three things are used as the symbols of wealth in many cultures,
taken together they are especially characteristic for the worship of
wealth in Old China. One of the attributes of the Chinese god of
wealth was a magic vessel capable of multiplying gold. Sea dragons -
most popular personage of Chinese mythology - are said to have at the
bottom the palaces full of gold and jewels.
