The circular polished center is the focal point of the design. It is like the surface of a clear pool, and also like a magnifying glass that shows two fish’s movement. It seems two fish are swimming together leisurely, and enjoying their respective joy at the same time.
From the front view, it’s when you dive into the water and watch fish swim and see everything clearly from the sea floor- the Taihu rock stands up tall, fish swims in between; on the other hand, the polished surface recreates an experience of viewing from atop of the water. These two perspectives were combined into one design, making the artwork more interesting to view.
In a nutshell, when appreciating things from different perspectives, we may be able to release ourselves from boundaries or physical limits, and reach an intellectual freedom.
