Koi Fish Legend

In Japan there is a legend about thousands of fish that swim upstream to climb the falls at a point called Dragon Gate on the Yellow River. Only one in many years has the dedication to make the leap and be transformed into a dragon.
I created this illustration for the Un-limbed-ited Amputee Camp.
Most illustrations are very Japaneese. I deciede to use a Celtic Knot to intertwine the fish and dragon.
