The picture coincides with the last line where his pole lying in its rack is unable to catch any more fishes. The picture shows a fisherman paddling his boat lonely and trying to catch fish. The fisherman is seen to be sad as his pole will not catch any more fish, indicating the end of the day’s struggle. A question is raised as to whether the picture shown containing only one fisherman is indicative of too few people living besides a sandbank or besides a village? The picture coincides with the fisherman’s internal sorrow for not being able to catch enough fish, evident in the symbol of the fisherman rowing backwards trying to go home on the west. The cap on his head indicates the cultural inclination reflecting in the adherence to its primeval heritage. The poet has thrown forward a fisherman’s story that is bound by his family or someone waiting for him, for whom he is supposed to collect fish to be cooked at night. The picture poses a question when the fisherman is seen to be going home dissatisfied. What would the family do when the fisherman reaches with little fish? The lines are not about a static relationship, but leave the reader with many unanswered questions in the life of a fisherman. The picture also assumes that women of those times would be responsible for looking after homely chores and not assisting their man for fishing. Were women confined to homely tasks in the Yuan dynasty? Such question remains unanswered by the poet. In all, Chen has presented a beautiful poem of a fisherman, in which simplicity and apparentness of a daily life manifest itself through the thousands of interpretations of the poem combined with the picture.
