Wisteria Koi Fish Pair Sticker (white- or clear-back)


Koi Fish are beautiful and the original painting that I pulled this design from was one of the first I painted in my Silhouette Series. Instead of just working within the silhouette outline, I used flowers and plants for the fins and other anatomical features of the fish. See my "Peacock Koi Fish Pair" sticker as well.

"In Japan, Koi symbolize many good qualities. Known to swim against the current and overcome great obstacles (as mentioned in an old saying described below), Koi symbolize strength, courage, patience, and success through perseverance. As Koi can grow very large and live a long life, they have become a symbol of prosperity and good luck. Their slow, graceful movements also symbolize peace and tranquility. If there is a pond in a Japanese garden, chances are, you will also find Koi. Japanese gardens are often found close to or within temples and palaces, also very auspicious places. Koi may very well have been kept close to these places as a good luck charm or to ensure the success of those who visit."

JAPANESE PROVERB & KOI: Koi Fish are also mentioned in numerous sayings including the one described below.

"Koi no takinobori"(translations: 鯉の滝登り) a Koi’s swim up a waterfall) Refers to overcoming obstacles that seem almost impossible.

Select either the white-background or clear-background sticker version. Stickers are weather-proof. They're able to withstand exposure to wind, rain, and sunlight. All of my stickers are printed on premium vinyl with a permanent adhesive and are coated with a protective laminate that makes them super durable and resistant to fading, scratching, tearing, oil, and water. They can even be safely run through a dishwasher.
