a man needs a fish (bicycle 2)

I made these two for a swap called "Put a Fish on It," but I think they kinda go with the "Freaks of Nature" theme.

Bicycle background from a photo by Ai Weiwei. Mismatched man parts from Tom Tierney paper dolls. Fish are male sockeye salmon in ocean phase (grey) vs. spawning phase (red).

For those of you who don't know it: these collages are my take on the expression "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle."
