They say "what is one man’s junk, is another man’s treasure.” This painting is a parody on pirates taking another man's treasure. In this case, the story illustrates a lesson on how values change in different circumstances in life. In this painting, you will see a little structure full of charm and pirate flavor. Constructed out of the salvage from the inhabitants wrecked ship, the carcass of the ship is seen just outside the breakers with only some wooden ribs and the bow showing. It was obviously wrecked on the rocks during a storm or some mishap.
Pieces of the ship, windows, boards and a pirate flag as an awning shade create a little shack. A treasure chest is spilled on its side and the treasure is partly visible but fading into the sand. The use for this chest now is a table, where we see a knife stuck in the surface next to a plate with a fish skeleton on it. The chest is more valuable now as this eating surface than anything else. What good is gold on a desert isle? Behind this on the side of the shack we see the marks carved in the wall...made to count the days or months lost on this island.
Peer into a pirate's private island in this whimsical nautical artwork by Tom "Thor" Thordarson.
