Chinese carp Liyu painting has a long history. It is one of the most popular auspicious thing. The ancient Chinese deem Liyu fish as one of the symbol of wealth, respect, lucky and power.The words for fish and abundance are pronounced the same in Chinese (yu) so the fish in the Chinese culture symbolizes wealth. Fish also symbolize harmony, marital happiness and reproduction because they multiply rapidly and sometimes swim in pairs.
The most popular fish motif found in Chinese art and culture is that of the Carp fish Liyu. The Chinese carp has numerous symbolic values within Chinese culture. The carp is a powerful symbol of strength and perseverance. The scales and whiskers of the carp resemble that of a dragon, a great symbol of power in China. At the New Year Festival "lucky money" is given out in red envelopes usually decorated with the koi fish to welcome wealth coming year after year.
The symbol of a double carp facing each other is said to increase wealth and good luck.
Traditionally, Chinese people like to hang one of this kind of paintings in the lounge to wish wealth, harmony and good fortune to the family. Why not take this one home.
