The legend of Koi carp

Posted by Luz Sanchez Aguilar on

Some earrings from my Japan collection are inspired by carp (koi) which have a beautiful meaning in Japanese culture.
Legend says that the fish that managed to swim upstream to the waterfall and climb it, when they arrived as a reward for their effort, were transformed into dragons, which is why they say that Koi carp look so much like dragons. Normally when a Koi carp is represented they are considered good fortune in business or academic life, it is also associated with perseverance in the face of adversity (strength) and persistence, on the other hand it is also considered a symbol of patience and longevity. It is said that the koi's ascent to the waterfall means: “Succeed in life.”
