Description

Large, green carp with its tail buried in the ground and its head in the air balancing a yellow lemon in its mouth with a large, green cup on top of the lemon. The piece was inspired by Hong Kong's fish markets. In China, carp represent prosperity; by scarring its surface, Broel suggests the loss of values in the quest for wealth. The sculpture was cast at the Walla Walla Foundry, which is owned and operated by alumnus Mark Anderson '78. http://www.broelstudio.com/index.html.
