Size: H26.5cm including base x 26cm x 16cm
Swimming powerfully against the current, nine 24K gilded koi symbolising everlasting abundance gather momentum to breach a waterfall in a metaphor for courage, perseverance and accomplishment. A striking object in any interior, the abundant symbolism makes it especially meaningful in the corporate world. Pewter, with selected gilding, on a base of walnut-stained nyatoh.
The combination of a circular ring and square base references the Chinese concept of 天圆地方 tiānyuán dìfāng, literally ‘round heaven square earth’, which reflects the early belief in a flat square earth, surmounted by the celestial dome, but is also be taken to mean all-encompassing harmony.
Includes a H2cm x 8cm landscape orientation engraving plate for personalisation.
