This is a beautiful silk mat meticulously hand-embroidered using 10 Carat gold threads with an image of the carp swimming against a strong current of water.
Legend has it that carps will turn into dragons upon crossing the gate. In order to achieve their goal, the carps will have to swim upstream and jump rapids. The carps have therefore become an emblem of perseverance and a symbol of pursuit for high ambitions and excellence, a powerful symbol that brings literary, scholastic, and career luck, perfect for students and anyone pursuing a new skill or career. The carp is also a Feng Shui symbol suggestive of harmony and marital bliss, especially when two of them are seen swimming together.
Place this auspicious piece of art on any table or low cabinet top- console table, bedside table, coffee table, dining table, etc., under a lamp, a teapot, a vase, or a Feng Shui figurine. You can even have it framed and hang it on the wall if you want. It is a stylish oriental accentuation with a touch of Feng Shui for your home space or office.
