This piece is based on an illustration Preecha contributed to HM King Rama IX's book "Mahajanaka", a Buddhist tale about perseverance. In this classic legend, the hero is tossed from his boat and swims blindly in the sea for seven days and seven nights, until finally catching sight of his destination (land). Preecha's newspaper boat is created from articles detailing the corrupt society sinking under its problems. We are shown the transition from ignorance to intelligence.
