Product Information

 

The legend of the koi fish jumping the dragon gate is a popular and inspiring myth in Chinese culture. The story tells of an enormous school of golden koi which swam upstream in the Yellow River in China. After a hundred years of jumping, one koi finally reached the top of the waterfall. The gods recognised the koi for its perseverance and determination and turned it into a golden dragon, the image of power and strength.
