Artist's Description

They’ve been out fishing for five long days. Day and night the nets were cast, but the harvest was poor. The fish caught was much less than expected, but hopefully just enough for the Master to pay a small Christmas Bonus to the Crew. Less than last year’s, but together with their share of the catch, it should be adequate enough to see them through most of the Christmas-time expenses. The rough weather they encountered while at sea gave them a few bumps, but these were soon forgotten at the sight of their families on the jetty, just as soon as they approached the mooring spot at the small Fishing Village of Marsaxlokk. Christmas is just three days away and the forcasted rough weather will surely not see them out at sea for another week or so. Good job….they need to spend a few days with their families. This could be their first Christmas together for the last three or four years. The fish has already been loaded onto the truck, and the couple of hours spent cleaning the boat to make it ship-shape again and secure enough were well-worth the effort. All they could think of now is a well-earned rest.
