The Harlequin's Carnival by Joan Miro

Joan Miro was a well known Spanish Catalan painter, sculptor, and ceramist. This is his painting entitled The Harlequin's Carnival. It was done on canvas with oil paint in 1924 to 1925. I like it mostly because there is just so much to look at. Every structure within the painting resembles something like an animal. Personally, I can see flies, fish, chickens and even mermaids. It gives me the impression of a toy maker"s workshop. The table in the corner could be where the toy maker builds his toys. On the table seems to be the makings of a new toy but I don't believe it is finished.
