Japanese Antique Hand Carved Wood Koi Good Fortune Fish Sassy Tail, 19th Century

About

From our recent Japanese Acquisitions Travels- a neat catch with a sassy tail. A large fine old Japanese 19th century hand carved wooden KOI fish sculpture symbolic of prosperity, perseverance and good fortune. This big fish displays a beautiful dark patina from appropriate old age. Good sculptural choice. Originally a crossbar for a hanging pot hook ensemble called jizai, these were often displayed in Japanese main living rooms for suspending cooking pots and kettles over a charcoal fire. Today these antique works of art serve as wonderful decorative sculptures as ours. Dimensions: 12 inches in length and 6 inches high Provenance: Old Southern Japanese collection. History of KOI Many of the attributes of the Koi symbolize prosperity and success including several lessons individuals often encounter in life. The Koi fish has a powerful and energetic life force, demonstrated by its ability to swim against currents and even travel upstream. Some of the characteristics associated with the Koi include: Good fortune, success, prosperity, longevity, courage, ambition and perseverance. Lifetime guarantee of authenticity: All of our Asian works of art come with our lifetime authenticity guarantee.
