THE FISHERMAN ( BM886 )
painting on 30"x30" canvas ( n/a )

In this art piece, the fisherman symbolizes the hunting instinct in men and the fish symbolizes every attainable token of wealth in life. The creature is seen gathering fish and the expression is joy and achievement. The mood is not of resistance by the fish but almost of a yielding. It's almost as though the fish (material wealth) seem to take pleasure in the joy they bring to the hunter. In other words, all material wealth available to each man is for the taking; if the hunter is willing and determined enough, it can all be his. As man, we are all able to achieve goals. There is no limit to how much we can acquire. The question is, how much do we want and how hard are we willing to attain that wealth?
