Photographic Print. Orange Koi fish in milky reflections of a Water Lily pond at a Holetown restaurant, Barbados.
Although the fish are swimming, the photograph has a tranquility and stillness due to the splendour of colour and the hazy water in the water garden in the Caribbean. The word Koi was first used about 2,500 years ago in China. Koi are
believed to have been introduced to Japan with the invading Chinese and
according to Koi fish history the first account of them being kept by
an emperor in Japan was in AD 200. Colour mutations occurred naturally and breeding for patches of colour began in China around 1000 years ago. Carp fish were first bred for
colour mutations in Japan around 1820, where selective breeding of the
Prussian Carp led to the development of the goldfish.
