Story behind the Artwork:
Noon, ang isda ay itinuturing na pagkain ng mga mahihirap dahil sa abot-kayang halaga kaysa karne ng baboy at baka, ngunit ngayon ay pumapantay na ang presyo nito at minsan ay mas mataas pa sa presyo ng karne.
Ang isda ay inagaw na sa hapag ng mahihirap… Dahil sa dami ng gastusin lalo na nang magkaroon ng pandemya, karamihan ay nawalan ng hanapbuhay at humina ang kita ng mga negosyo– dahilan upang mabawasan din ang kita ng karaniwang manggagawa kaya’t pinagkakasya na lang ang pera upang makabili ng kahit kakarampot… matikman lamang ang masarap na isda.
