What was not my surprise to discover this image. The face of the elder fish has really something human, or at least in its expression. It seems wandering. As a wiseman teaching his disciple or a mother answering her baby about some difficult questions we sometimes might have to answer.
About life, death, the meaning of life...To be or not ...

And moreover, how less we know about the mysteries of our universe. Even with our fully advanced technology, we still ignore so many things. We don't know much about the wonder of our seas for exemple, especially about the species living in its abysall parts.

Emmanuel Knibbe Merci beaucoup pour tes mots Dimitri mais ton commentaire me laisse pour le moins perplexe. Cela dit, la polysémie que peut avoir une image est toujours intéressante car chacun y voit avec sa propre émotion.

Alexej Schulz Captivating and moody minimalism, Emmanuel, nicely abstracted!

Roberto De Mitri certainty is security, but it is also a closed gate.
uncertainty, on the contrary, is indeterminacy. it is a gate that opens onto an infinite world of fantasy and suggestion that has its charm in the unknown.

Claude de Maisonneuve Où l'inconnu devient une source d'inspiration pour découvrir, comprendre, imaginer l'objet qui nous apparaît incompréhensible. Aller au devant du mystère, lui donner une identité.

Emmanuel Knibbe Absolutely Roberto! The wise man doubt especially because of its open-minded. The more you learn, the more you realize how little you know [Cf : Socrate] Everytime you gain a greater understanding of something, it often creates more questions than answers.
The only certainty of the wise is that nothing is ever certain.
Thank you very much for your nice words and constant support, it really touches me :)
