THE STORY

It is a unique, decorative item and in excellent condition. The horns will be detached for shipment and can be reattached easily.

KOI FISH IN FENG SHUI
"The koi fish has been appreciated in both the Chinese and Japanese cultures for many centuries. In Japanese culture, the koi carp is a highly respected and very symbolic fish. The koi carp is thought to be a symbol of luck, prosperity, and good fortune within Japan. Koi fish are believed to have 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, Success, Prosperity, Longevity, Courage, Ambition and perseverance

Many of the above described symbolic meanings of koi fish stem from the Chinese legend of the Dragon Gate in which a koi fish 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, it became a dragon, one of the most auspicious creatures in Chinese culture."

DISCLAIMERS
- The horns can put in 2 different ways
- The horns will be detached for transport purposes, and are easily reattached.
There is also a drawstring attached to the skull so that it can be mounted on a wall.
- The horns are always packed on the bottom of the box, underneath the skull. Please make sure to remove the horns before discarding of the packaging.
- Since it is a natural skull, it might have some natural minimal cracks and crevices in both the skull and the horns. This is normal. Please refer to pictures.
- Our skulls are cleaned professionally, but sometimes minor discoloration still occurs on the teeth. This is natural and normal, and not something we can do a lot about. Please refer to the pictures.

THE DIMENSIONS
Length: 75cm
Width: 81cm
