About "Seishin Nishikigoi"
In Japanese, the word “Koi,” actually is a homophone. It is a homophone for another Japanese word meaning “love that is affectionate.” When you combine the beauty of these fish with the association to this other word, you’ll quickly see how the Koi started becoming associated with the Japanese culture’s idea of loyalty, friendship, and even love. You’ll find that this symbolism and meaning is found in a lot of music, literature, and art of the Japanese.However one doesn't have to be Japanese to appreciate thiere beauty and tranquil grace. its interesting to note that we Africans share a common belief with our Chinese brothers who believed the Koi swam up a fountain and became a dragon,much like our African equivalent the barbel who was revered and feared because people believed it could walk,obviously the metaphor indicates a creature that is able to travel to other dimensions, possibly to the supernatural world and beyond.
