Floating Koi

Floating Koi by WM House (©2022 Archean Enterprises, LLC; Archean Art)

Words don’t adequately capture the graceful beauty of colorful koi gliding silently below the glassy surface of a pond. It is truly art in motion as they emerge from the shadows, shimmering in the sunlight, slipping beneath the bridges, and passing each other like phantoms.

This digital artwork is based on an original photo taken at the Japanese Gardens in Portland, Oregon. The image catches reflections of open sky and overhanging trees, giving an impression of the koi gliding between Earth and sky.
