The lotus flower and fish are very loved subjects in the Chinese or sumie ink painting. These flowers and animals represent the zen sprit of the Asian art. The lotus contains many of the greatest admirable qualities that social elites throughout history desire: elegance, purity, and integrity. The elites remind themselves of who they thrive to be with these flowers. The fish are known in traditional stories to be able to jump so high that they reach the gate in the heavens and become dragons. The fish are common people just like you and me, but we can become whomever we desire by working diligently. In general, the concept of this piece is an encouragement, telling us to go for it and not give up. However, the story aside, this is also a piece that is completely peaceful and quiet, allowing us to regain focus.
