Design and Story:Featuring parts of the famous children's story "The Little Black Fish". The fish illustrations were inspired by the original illustrations created for the book by Farshid Mesghali. "[The story] addresses adult themes such as injustice, oppression, and struggle. Written by Samad Behrangi (1939-1967), a teacher, social critic, folklorist, translator, and short story writer from Iranian Azerbaijan, the story concerns a small black fish that leaves the safety of a local stream to venture out into the world. As he discovers the vastness of the ocean, he also comes into contact with various animals that either represent the oppressed class or the oppressors. He is faced with many obstacles and threatening creatures and ultimately sacrifices himself to save the lives of others..."
