1000: Carp ascending (Kaname)

The carp is a traditional symbol of wordly success, and these two fine specimens produce a vigorous spray as they make their way up in the world. The original title, Daishôri ("Great-rise-carp") is a pun, because with different characters shôri also means "Victory".

The painter Ozuma Kaname was born in 1939, in Niigata. He studied traditional Japanese art, and his pictures are generally based on traditional themes.

Ozuma is his family name: he signs paintings with the single character of his given name only.
