In China there is a legend about the koi fish who swim up the Yellow River. At the end of the river there is a waterfall, and if a koi can make it up to the top, it’s transformed into a golden dragon. The dragon symbolizes strength and perseverance and koi fish themselves are considered lucky.
This hand-illustrated card features the koi swimming up the waterfall and one making it to the top to become a dragon! It’s a very thoughtful way to say congratulations to a graduate and recognizing their achievements.
