Open the card to 3-D Koi Fish rising from waves and bronze lotus flowers. The intricate cutting creates amazing shadows.
Koi fish symbolize the many lessons and trials individuals encounter in life. The Koi has a powerful and energetic life force, demonstrated by its ability to swim against currents and travel upstream. In feng shui, koi fish represent good luck and happiness.
In the Chinese legend a koi swam upstream through waterfalls and other obstacles to reach the top of the mountain. At the top of the mountain was the Dragon Gate. The legend says that when the koi finally reached the top, the Gods approved of his heroism and turned him into a Golden Dragon, one of the most auspicious creatures in the Chinese culture.
This is a card for a survivor, for someone in recovery, for finding inner strength.
