Koi (Nishikigoi): Glass Block Paperweight

 

Lays flat for paperweight or stands vertical as desk ornament

Two layers of thick glass

Chinese calligraphy for "Koi (Nishikigoi)" in a heavy glass paperweight.

Nishikigoi in Japanese translates to "Brocaded Carp" and is used to describe the colorful carp commonly called Koi. In Chinese (pinyin: "Jin Li"), the characters translate the same and they are an auspicious symbol that relates to having abundance. A legend states that a carp can become a dragon by navigating through the "Dragon Gate", a large waterfall in the Yellow River near Henan. It symbolizes that a common person can become great by his extraordinary accomplishments.

Inspirational Chinese calligraphy printed and sandwiched between two pieces of thick glass for an attractive desk ornament or paperweight. Lays flat or stands vertically. Double-sided calligraphy. Dimensions: 2.5” x 4” x 1” thick and weighs 13.5 ounces.


Construction note: Thick glass has a natural greenish tint on the edges as seen in the photos. The block has a thin 2-mm space between the sections where the double-sided calligraphy is inserted. The edges are beveled to prevent cuts when handling.
