Yin Yang - Koi
Koi, or wild carp, have figured impressively in Asian pottery, paintings, and carvings since ancient times. The Japanese considered Koi the most spirited fish, and it became the symbol for courage, strength, and perseverance toward success in both Chinese and Japanese cultures. This design pairs the fish in a symbolic form of yin yang, the ancient symbol of Taoism, and imagery for the balance of life.
Yin & Yang - A symbol in Taoism representing any two opposite forces in nature. No matter what they are, they are always interdependent on each other. If yin is stronger, yang is weaker (and vice versa). I’ve always been infatuated with this because it’s about balance and how opposites rely on each other, and even have some of each other. It’s in everything.
