Koi-nobori

I designed this piece for “Design Koi-nobori," held at Roppongi Midtown.

(Koi-nobori is the name for carp-shaped flags used to celebrate Kids Day in Japan)

This triangle pattern is a traditional Japanese design, called Uroko pattern.

It is said to avert bad things. In my design I tried to create an image of a swimming carp that is powerful and energetic.
