We can see through the still water in the foreground because fallen rocks shade the area from bright light. The idea is to look up and move from the clear shallows if only to squint into the light. There are faces in all areas of the rocks. A bright master stands on the left giving a lecture to those around him. There is a female figure on the right giving feminine balance. Both figures initially look like cave exits because one has to go through them – their understanding in order to move on again.
