I am aware that some art can seem strange to those of us who aren't artists. The above work, for example, is a case in point. It is a boy sitting on a fish sitting on a serpent. Maybe this piece imitates life. I can say with certainty, I have never seen anything like this in my life. Boys in my neighborhood simply do not ride fish. I can safely say that our local fish do not ride serpents. I am pretty sure this piece is a poor copy of the original from somewhere in Europe. Rumor has it, their fish are more athletic than ours. Mystery solved!
