Back to front?

By Chinga
The Theme this week: The sky! The images were captured in Alvor Port Algarve - Portugal.
Alvor is a primarily sailor village, so most of its people for generations have been devoted to fishing, and no wonder they have erected a statue in honor of this purpose. The sculpture that is dedicated to the fisherman is located, of course, in the port area. The sculptor is Joao Cutileiro and it reflects a fisherman with a captured piece in hand, giving thanks. But every time I look at it I feel it was placed back to front... Look closer and work it out...
Thank you to Prabhas (Prabhushinha), Paulo (Bento) Jenn (Taggart) for gracing the Roman skies shots...

Main image / V3 (which looks the same) - I like the way you have aligned the sculpture with the horizon, it creates an optical illusion.

Fascinating set, Isabel. Reminds me of Spike Milligan's famous quote "Buddy, does your nose run and your feet smell? Get medical attention, you're built upside down!" - except that it's back to front in this statue's case Wink. Fine skies in the images.
