This term we are working on artworks inspired by the countries of

Asia. Our first artwork was of a koi fish.

The word koi comes from Japanese, simply meaning “carp”. It includes

both the dull grey fish and the brightly coloured varieties.

In Japanese, koi is another word that means “affection” or “love”, so

koi fish are thus symbols of love and friendship in Japan, often

given as gifts or included in artworks and tattoos. 

We got the idea for these artworks from this teacher’s art lessons blog. Thanks!
