The ship is carved out a wood and then painted. The cable is cotton and is three-dimensional, while the ship is two-dimensional. It really does stand out from the background well. It has clearly just left port and is polluting both the sea and the atmosphere, and Mr Abbas emphasizes this with the blackness of the smoke coming out of the funnels. The wake left by the ship is a dirty colour, which contrasts with the bright blue of the sky. The sea around the land, which is made from crushed stones, also looks polluted.
In this picture Mr. Abbas again has no people visible although the pollution they cause is clear.
The distinctive signature frames and made by the artist and the corners are filled with crushed, varnished stones.
