$12 Teextile: METAMORPHOSIS

0 pennies earned

MITOHAPA embodies what I believe is a Japanese myth about what happens to human souls. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to get this 100% right, so please correct me. Anyway, it is said that people become these flying koi fish to reach the heavens. There they transform into a dragon (?). The koi also represent the human struggle/attainment for enlightenment. That definitely takes a transformation.

Even without having an idea of Japanese culture, I'm sure most people would find this shirt worth having. I do. For me, The cultural reference is just icing on the cake.

Although, I think the design would have been even more awesome with color. Those scales deserve some vibrancy!
