Product details
This is the original drawing made with ink on paper, in stippling / pointillism technique. Comes signed and unframed. Koi is the Japanese word for carp, a brightly colored type of freshwater fish commonly used in Asian landscape and design, including Chinese feng shui. Many of the attributes of the koi symbolize several lessons and even trials individuals often encounter in life. The koi fish has a powerful and energetic life force, demonstrated by its ability to swim against currents and even travel upstream. Some of the characteristics associated with the koi include: Good fortune / Success / Prosperity / Longevity / Courage / Ambition / Perseverance Many of the above described symbolic meanings of koi fish stem from the Chinese legend of the Dragon Gate in which a koi fish swam upstream, through waterfalls and other obstacles to reach the top of the mountain. At the top of the mountain was the "Dragon Gate." The legend says that when the koi finally reached the top, it became a dragon, one of the most auspicious creatures in Chinese culture. In Chinese culture, the symbol of fish has two attributed qualities. The first one is the aspect of abundance (because of the ability of fish to quickly reproduce in large quantities). The second one is the fact that the Chinese word for fish (yu) is pronounced the same way as abundance. So, it goes without saying that the image of fish is one of the most popular and potent feng shui cures to attract the energy of wealth.
