What do we see in this poster - Carp becomes Dragon?

This poster is a Korean folk painting called Yaklido (Picture of a Jumping Carp, 약리도, 躍鯉圖). It comes from the Chinese legend of the Dragon Gate (the dragon that rises to the gate, 등용문, 登龍門). This painting consists of said carp jumping into the air. Up the Yellow River of China, there is a gorge called Yongmun (Dragon Gate, 용문, 龍門). It is said that the current in this gorge is very strong and even large, strong fish have difficulty swimming against it. There is a legend that a fish that fought against the rough currents of the Dragon Gate became a dragon.

In other words, the carp symbolizes ordinary people, and the dragon is a special creature, so ordinary people overcome difficulties and achieve success.

Therefore, even today it is still very popular as a gift for people taking exams such as entrance exams and exams.

The dragon gate is a symbol of success, which is why this folk painting, Yaklido, was primarily used as a gift that contributed to success, for example before an important exam.

The correct title of the picture is: "A picture of a carp becoming a kite". In Japan, this title depicts a carp jumping into the water. In Korean folk pictures, however, it is usually shown jumping into the air. So that's what we mean by Yaklido. Along with Yongmun Gorge (Dragon Gate) in the background, some of the carp heads in these paintings are painted with dragon faces.

Sehr schön

Das Bild habe ich in meinem Lesezimmer aufgehängt. Sieht sehr schön aus. Ich bin allerdings am überlegen, ob ich es etwas größer bestellen soll.

Konrad Schöbe

Die Qualität des Material und der Bildauflösung hat mich wirklich beeindruckt.

Zudem wurde es sehr schnell geliefert und das Aufhängen war einfach.

Die leeren Wände in meinem Büro werden durch dieses und die anderen Bilder von extrem aufgewertet.

Ich werde definitiv wieder bestellen.
