i like this it is beautiful. i like the image duplication - but am looking at it emotionally or personally for it speaks a story to me so i do not know. it is beautiful to me. you are very very good. yet wise critique should be listened to also. this did pop out to me. so- it is still amazing.  

actually- this is an edit - and i add the following -- i think this is perfect the way it is. how you have put decisions into this picture is how we see the Oldman. and then the fish who has been caught who has scared him with speech who is of the sea and we are in mid story which you are re-interpreting as it is. the wife is not really represented - and yet she is- this would or could be the repetition both the sea the back ground the two animals - so you have been "more deliberate" "about your choices of repetition" "in the picture" which flows with the folk tale itself and with the "ways thing happen in life"-   and the almost blending of the fish with the background  as the Oldman "is wishing at the bidding of his wife" who will be "lost to sea" if i recall -basically as i have come to realize all 3 characters are "caught and scared" or are "in struggle" . the story is circular. anyone can relate to it. anyone could be any "character".  

that is why this fairy tale has lasted to now and your "glimpse into it with this beautiful art is magnificent".

i do not know if what i have written makes sense. i am not "scholarly" and i am not good at "art critique".
i understand to an extant the heartache of this story - and i love to draw. i do recognize when a piece of art makes sense "immediately" to my eye or heart.

lovely style, very delicate and exquisite. But you should avoid the image duplication as background.

thank u, maybe you are right
sometimes I like to do it, but this one I really could not decide, guess it fells like it take attention of picture itself and you do not know where to look
I needed somebody to tell me that

Don't do it, it doesn't do anything for your art, and it makes it look like a cheap presentation.
I was watching your other pieces, you have a great talent.
This is the kind of stuff that should be done as marble mosaics in large format.
