Most of Japanese gardens have Koi pond.
Koi pond is the symbol of Japanese garden.
There are stones around Koi pond, sometimes there is even a stone bridge over the koi pond.
Pine trees, bamboo trees and other trees are around the pond.
In the water, usually colorful koi fish called “Nishiki goi” are swimming.
The color is gold, white, silver, red, orange, black, etc.
And especially red & white combination koi fish is highly valued.
We consider Koi fish as a good luck symbol.
Koi fish is believed to bring us a good luck as well as prosperity.
Just looking at those koi fish swimming in the water is very soothing.
Drawing koi fish has the same healing effect as meditation does to me.
They are beautiful and always give me the enthusiasm to draw them.
