I don't know a better way to explain so I'll just write how I speak. This art work is about the dilemma about what to speak and what not to speak. The painting has impressions of a distressed face. The two fisher people are placed where the eyes might be.
The rod's top tip is the tip of the eyebrow which is frowning. The clouds are the temples' folds on the forehead. The two fishes form lips and the biggest bubbles are two sides of the nose.
The cliff on the upper left side has straight lines representing rigidity, the right bottom has swirls (in contrast to the straight lines) representing confusion. The two fisher people show polarity. The left one is pulling up the upper fish (trying to open the mouth) and the right one is pulling up the lower fish (trying to close the mouth) representing how a mouth feels pulled with different intentions by the tension in the forehead confused on what to say and what not to.
