  • Title: Koi Fish
  • Artist: Penzu IV
  • Description: Koi are brightly colored fish found in Japan. What are known as 'koi' in English are referred to more specifically as 'nishikigoi' in Japan. In Japanese, 'koi' is another word for 'affection or love'; koi are therefore symbols of love and friendship in Japan. An example of this is given in a short story by Mukoda Kuniko, "Koi-san".

  • Beautifully shaded, and I love the little message in his eye. I cant understand it...but gives the dimension that there is a much deeper meaning.
