Scroll down to learn more about the history of this illustration.


In Asian culture, the carp (koi) symbolizes perseverance in the face of adversity and difficulties, the determination that leads us to achieve our goals despite the fact that they require tenacity and dedication.

In this illustration, the carp is a symbol of the essence of a beautiful young woman with an absent look. It is the carp that speaks through her, the one that manifests the strength and calm that fill her spirit.

She has a distant look, and her silence hides the strength of the secrets she keeps. He dresses in a kimono whose pattern shows The Great Wave off Kanagawa; she carries in her body the image of those waves, the adversities, in that infinite instant before breaking; but his mind is calm, admiring the stillness in the midst of the storm.

She doesn't need to look at us to tell us everything: we see her trusting herself and moving forward while the light of events leaves its mark on her skin.
