A Nishikigoi carp appears in the dark, looking down on a pond.
Many of shiki eiichi's paintings feature creatures that have been deformed, stylized, or otherwise transformed in original ways, but the realistic expression of this work is an exception to the rule.
The finish of the cup is not smooth, but rather contracted and uneven, creating an expression similar to that of the bottom of a pond, which, in combination with the motif, makes the hand holding the cup enjoyable.
