This is a piece inspired by scenes of Tai O village in Hong Kong. One of the famous produce of this fishing village is dried fish. See next photo.
I am not sure why some fish are dried in baskets, while some are hung to dry. Perhaps the fish in the basket is a different variety which birds love…. Anyway, a lady told me that the heads are covered to prevent flies from laying eggs (around the eyes, I guess)
Lots of fish being dried. The dried fish is quite delicious. We had meat and dried fish in a clay pot, and fried rice with diced chicken and dried fish. Only a small piece is required since it’s quite salty.
