Artist's description:

The Chinese believed that dragons ward off evil spirits and protect people. This fascination with dragons is what made the Asian Arowana, or Golden Arowana, very popular. Also called Dragon Fish, because of its resemblance to the mythical animal, the Asian Arowana is believed to bring good fortune to whoever its owner is. Businessmen keep Arowanas, especially the Gold Arowana, to help maintain the prosperous growth of their businesses.

Geomancers and Feng Shui experts advise their clients to keep a Blood Red Arowana in their homes or offices to encourage the entry of good luck and prosperity; it is also believed that if you have an Arowana inside the house it may also save your life. It is believed that any misfortune that is originally intended for the people inside the house are said to be taken in by the Arowana; and the fish will also die in place of its master if need be.
