As one of the most important symbols in Asian culture, the Koi Fish represents good fortune, virility, perseverance and longevity. The symbolism is rooted in an old Chinese legend where a Koi fish swims the Yellow River upstream, battling the current to get to the top of a waterfall where it is rewarded by the gods who turn it into a golden dragon. The carp has thus become a symbol of success, determination and destiny fulfilled. This legend remains celebrated today during Kohinoor, when young children are wished success. This vase majestically embodies this ancestral legend with twelve Koi fish swimming upstream in swirls of satin-finished crystal.
