Both Sikhism and Hinduism profess a continuation of life after death in the form of reincarnation. It is believed that our encestors may still be alive in the form of birds or other living creatures as they prod though the precess of rebirths.
Many religious places in India have places for other forms of life to be looked after and paid homage to; there are fishponds for fishes, designated areas to feed birds and trees which are worshipped, watered and looked after.
This image depicts a fishpond in a Gurudwara (Sikh temple) in Sirhind, Punjab. What I like about the image is that through the closeness of fishes and humans it shows a bonding through close proximity and trust that humans and other forms of life must share. Also, it depicts that human race must act responsibly and respect all other forms of life.
