Jesus and the 153 fishes

The miraculous catch of 153 has been depicted many times in art, and the boat on the water can be represented by an 18 piece jigsaw featuring familiar triangular numbers 153, 666, and 703. The triangular number 5778 is the 18th Lucas number and the golden ratio raised to the 18th power. Like 153 and 276, 5778 is also hexagonal. 5778 is one of only three 4 digit numbers to appear three times within the first 1000 digits of pi. The second and third occurrences are separated by the number 18.


A similarly appropriate aquatic scene is possible using fewer jigsaw pieces to construct the 5778 jigsaw.
