The port view of Priit Aavik is primarily interested in the modernity of the port complex. The artist carefully tries to convey modern cranes and ships, and he does it admirably well. Every element in this view emphasizes progress and pushing life forward: it is a platform for doing work, where you immediately start doing something important. At the same time, Aavik has decided to paint the church tower of old town in the background, giving the view a completely different dimension. If the cranes and ships speak of the fast future, the shot of old town instead looks to the past.
