UNDER THE KOI POND

Original acrylic on canvas –diptych 20”x48”
Artists:  Angela Cimino & Kathryn Smith

The History of Koi ponds dates back hundreds of years to the Shang Dynasty in China where they began as carp, bred mostly for food.

During the early trade era in the East these fish were first introduced to Japan. It was the Japanese, who, started selectively breeding them for their bright colors, adding them into household ponds.

But it was not until the early part of the twentieth century that Emperor Hirohito (reign: 1926-1989) decided to put Koi into the moat of his imperial palace. Koi were simultaneously exhibited at the Tokyo Exhibition that year and the western world became familiar with this beautiful, domesticated fish. 

In our painting we have adhered to the traditional Japanese Koi Pond that always contains an odd number of fish (for luck) and includes one black fish (masculine energy and strength) symbolizing overcoming an obstacle. In the diptych can be seen 15 fish – 4 Koi, 3 Lionheads (one is black) and 8 small-fry.
