A Goldfish is a symbol for abundance and prosperity and a popular symbol in China. To keep a lose style but mimmick the shimmering and translucency many layers with thin glazes of black, violet, deep blue, red and yellow were used. I love aquariums and watching fish. My favorites are the brightly colored ones like goldfish. The way they shimmer and swim.
