21st century - in excellent condition

Completely engraved large mother of pearl shell, very intricate. The carving onto the shell is a group of Japanese KOI fish surrounded by lotus flowers.
The shell was engraved by Balinese craftsmen, who have mastered the art of carving.
Comes with black metal stand.

Koi fish are a common symbol in both Chinese culture and Feng Shui. Many of the attributes of the Koi symbolize several lessons and even trials individuals often encounter in life. The koi fish has a powerful and energetic life force, demonstrated by its ability to swim against currents and even travel upstream. Some of the characteristics associated with the koi include: good fortune, succes, prosperity, longevity, courage, ambition and perseverance.

Koi in Feng Shui:
Its placement is said to attract auspicious abundance and prosperity into your home and life, and some opt to have multiple representations of this fish.

Width of shell: 17 cm
Height, including stand: 30cm

    Hi there,

    The catawiki chat system was closed. That is why we cant talk there anymore. This was not in my hands, Catawiki's did this automatically. That is why I told Catawiki to give you my private phone number and e-mail. I had asked for your information, but they could not give that to me because of privacy laws. I see that you gave me a negative feedback again. However, I have done all in my power to contact you. Catawiki has provided you with my e-mail address and phone number. Now it is up to you to reach out to me so that I can solve this issue with you. Kind regards, Jake
