I have a hand woven carpet of this "composition" on my wall at present.My take on it is that on the left, it is a human, with all sensory organs open to information. This information (data/experience/emotion) is then "processed" on the right hand side of the painting, going through a myriad of processes, and condensed into a single memory in the bottom RHS of the painting. The circles (almost ghost like figures) on the right, are a kind of "soul" or "moral/higher intelligence/deep emotion" that influence the memory of a single event that is then embedded in our mind/brain.
My opinion only not backed up by anything other that having viewed this painting for at least a couple of decades.

So, I was wondering if this painting could possible be upside down as well. It seems like it was intended to be a cat? I would like additional information as well.

you guys are all awesome, I've just had a good laugh. To all those who think like Taco and Gyanendra, you just need to understand that this is basically art, thats why it's call abstract art, its not there for you to understand. It is sound. You can interpret it in yo own way, just know that Kandinsky was apparently listening to music when he did this masterpiece.

It is a rabbit and a cat upside-down, and the correct way up it is a person on the left side of the picture.
