Sleight of Dolphin

In case the complex composition of this work left you mystified, here's the breakdown:

In the sky, looming hugely over the dolphin as it leaps so majestically out of the sea, is Earth's moon. But wait! Be thou not so quickly lead to believe that it is a scene from Earth we are beholding! If you look to the upper-left of the work you will see....egad!...EARTH! Which means...this dolphin is on another planet!

Perhaps the artist is referencing the Exopolitical theory that dolphins are originally extra terrestrials?
