Ship of fools.

Generally I hate symbols, which is why I can’t stand reading parables or symbolic literature (because it consigns art and literature to cold mathematical models*), but I thought this pic was pretty neat.

*That is not to say symbols haven’t had their moments. Symbols are now and have been in history a way of  out foxing censors (think  Da Vinci paintings, for example) by hiding criticism of political or religious dogma in a double-entendre mode.
