Artist's description:

One of my favorite motifs is that of the Koi fish (Japanese carp).
According to legend the koi adopts a symbol of persistence and personal progress, in the process becoming stronger (a dragon) . In Japanese culture it also incorporates the symbolism of strength of one's own purpose, courage and perseverance towards the personal accomplishment of the goal.
The piece depicts muddy dark water and the carp swimming through it with small horns (not fully a dragon jet). It is a reminder that we all go through dark times and we must push through them, not fully reaching our goal, but being one step closer to it.

Materials used:
