Surrealistic still life group made up of seafaring equipment (?) placed on a deserted jetty against a flat sea. The still life comprises a tall sloping pole topped by a flat structure of two crossed beams overlaid with two semi-circular beams. Various objects are suspended on strings from the ends of the two straight beams, including a string of beads, a large cable reel, a pendulum (?) with a star on the front (compass?) and a metal studded ring.
