One of the cornerstones of Zen design is the pond containing Koi fish, in a peaceful setting among water lilies. When we visited Japan, I was captivated by the numerous temples, each with its own Koi pond. Sitting by the side of one, it was possible to be transported into a meditative, almost trance-like state. Zen gardens tend to soothe the senses and impart introspective calm. Perhaps this was the intent all along.

In such scenes, each element has its own significance. The pair of Koi fish signify Yin and Yang, abundance, good companionship, love and successful marriage. One of the Koi fish is a Yamabuki. The Yamabuki is gold in color and symbolizes riches and wealth. The other Koi fish is a Kohaku, which has a white body with red spots. It symbolizes success in one’s career.

I have tried to imbue this painting with all these qualities, and I hope it brings you as much joy as it has brought me.
