A ship at sea, heading for the sun, is a powerful symbol of adventure and discovery. In this illustration, you can see the ship at sea, you can see the sun shining. But the window panes somehow remove you from the scene -- you are isolated from the action, even though you can easily understand what the action is.

I think any window will do this to the scene you see. So, do you understand this image any less than an un-obstructed image? I don't know!
