This fabulous panel honors Children’s Day (May 5). In Japanese culture, the carp symbolizes courage and strength because of its ability to swim up a waterfall. The koi carp at the top represents the father, red for the mother and the center carp for the child. The tradition of flying carp banners has changed over time. Once honoring boys, now honors the entire family. Gold metallic highlights create luster and elegance.
Each panel comes with a hanger for the fabric to be slipped in along the edge for immediate display. It also can be hung on the wall without the scroll hangers or placed under glass.
