Paragraph 2: Symbolism
In the film Pi actually finds out about god presence in the journey in the ocean, as he relies on though the struggle to survive the journey. For example, “when Pi is in a storm struck on a boat with Richard parker and loses everything and out of all the darkness a light shine though and Pi realises gods presences and tells him he has given up and can go no longer do this anymore”. This is the very first-time Pi’s is revealed to god in the journey he has gone though of finding himself and surviving. Another way Pi was revealed to the face of god was though Richard Parker giving him a meaning to life and hope too. For example, “when Pi loses all the food in the ocean Richard Parker and Pi had to fish for fish for Richard Parker and later on Pi was also struck eating fish too as he had nothing else to eat”. Richard Parker was trying to survive himself but he was teaching pi a lot to, about survival and bravery. All the different way god was shown to Pi though symbolism was a sign and hope for Pi to fight on for his life and Richard Parkers too.
God was revealed to Pi in many ways though religion and symbolism of his presences to Pi. Which all lead him to keep hope for surviving. Pi also realises that without gods help he wouldn’t have survived the journey with and without Richard Parker.
