If you place a mirror directly in the middle of the painting and facing left, it will show the old man with his hands peacefully clasped and a calm sea behind him.

However, if you face the mirror to the right, all of a sudden the old fisherman becomes the devil himself with a wild, raging sea behind him and a dark, forboding sky above.
