The grouper, with its large, gaping mouth and strange eyes, appealed to artist Peter Calvesbert's penchant for weird creatures. The pattern of the grouper lends itself particularly well to staining. Groupers spend a lot of time at "cleaning stations," where other fish remove parasites from them. Here, wrasse are cleaning the grouper and one brave (or stupid?) fish is inside the grouper's mouth. Inside the box is an even stranger looking creature a moray eel. The mouse is hiding amongst the coral.
