This blue and white porcelain plate depicts a carp in a pond. A favorite subject for arts and crafts in Korea and China, carp symbolize the success in life; this representation comes from a Chinese legend in which the fish became a dragon as soon as it arrived at the head of the Yellow River in spring. In Korea, it is also a symbol of filial piety following a folk tale in which a son searches deep mountain valleys in the middle of winter to catch the fish for his aged mother.

Blue and white porcelain wares of Korea are marked by an elegant form presenting a design of unrestrained brush strokes in perfect harmony with the negative space surrounding it. The beauty of elegance and spirituality emanating from the Korean blue and white porcelain is often compared with its Chinese counterpart, which is characterized by luxurious designs nearly comprising the entire surface.
