A precisely painted, surreal harbour scene. There is a jetty in the foreground littered with sinister, oversized harbour equipment including anchors, fishing nets and ship motor blades. At the end of the jetty stands a tall white with rigging and flags. To the right, just below the horizon, the outer wall of the harbour is visible, with a large number seven painted on its side and the lighthouse at its end.
