Symbolism of the Dolphin
Dolphins were seen as a symbol of good luck for seafaring men because they often appeared beside ships during fair weather. They have also been known to aid distressed swimmers and protect them from sharks.
And from the great man himself:
“For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”
