Life of Pi Part 1, Chapter 15

By Yann Martel

Part 1, Chapter 15

  • The author interjects. He describes Pi's house, which has more holy statuettes than the Vatican. Well, not really. But he has tons of statues, paintings, and photographs.
  • The author describes a Ganesha, a Virgin Mary, a photograph of the Kaaba, a Shiva...the list goes on. Oh, and there's also a crucifix. (See Themes: Suffering.)
