Oil painting on canvas of a landscape with two male figures and a large figure with features of a human and a fish. The "fishman" shown with brown skin, pointed face, and large spiked fins stands at center on gray ground in front of a body of water and holds a net in outstretched arms. Two nude male figures with dark shoulder length hair flank the "fishman" at center right and left, kneeling on the ground and holding the ends of the net. Brown hills appear in the distance at right and left against a clear blue sky.
