Description  
This image depicts a Chinese, 19th Century study of a fish. The quality and detail of the work is exquisite creating a very realistic piece of artwork. Fish are an important motif in Chinese mythology. There are various myths involving fish. The word for "fish", yu is a homophone for "abundance" and "affluence". Chinese mythology refers to those myths found in the historical geographic area of China. Fish in Chinese mythology include myths in Chinese and other languages, as transmitted by Han Chinese as well as other ethnic groups (of which fifty-six are officially recognized by the current administration of China). The Chinese dragon is the head of the fish clan.
