Very Good Condition with little use. These sort of symbolic futon covers were most often presented to the bride and groom as a gift to begin their new life. Many times these textiles were not used but stored away safely as a fond remembrance of the happy marital occasion. Such is the case with this tsutsugaki.

Very Good image registration.

Many of the attributes of the koi fish 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.

Characteristics the Japanese associate with the koi fish include:

Good fortune, Success, Prosperity, Longevity, Courage, Ambition and Perseverance.

Additionally, much animal symbolism of fish comes from their watery world. Water is the realm of motion, emotion, dreams and the psyche,

All very suitable for this wedding Futon Cover.
