Is it Fish eating man or man-easting fish?

So, Nu? What is it: Man-eating fish or fish eating man?
This is a series of three sculptures, designed to hang on the wall, showing that situation.

The first is an imaginary fish eating a diver.

The second is an elaboration of the first. They are now in a sea of waves, the dive flag floats on the surface. Bright colors and some white water distinguish this from the rest.

The last depicts a real fish, a goldfish. Of course the fish is bigger than the man. Murky colors depict the depths of the sea. At once we see the sea shells on the ocean floor and the giant wave of water on the surface about to overtake them.
