This print called Koey Mokan talks about the big puffer fish.
The mokan is used on the coconut plant to bear plenty fruits. It is placed where the coconut leaves attached to the stem while the coconut is small. The pattern inside the belly of the mokan represent coconut tree and plentiful of fruits. The dog inside the mokan represent a dead dog. When I was small my uncle used to tell me that the mokan was poisonous and was used to kill wild dogs. Mokan would be roasted on coals and given to the dog to eat.
