About the Symbol of the Goldfish
Goldfish in Feng Shui are seen to be creators of good luck and positive outcomes in new endeavours and in particular matters of business. In Chinese the word “yu” can mean fish but also means success. So keeping fish or having an ornament or product with a fish or goldfish on it in the Feng Shui tradition is a means of attracting prosperity. As a goldfish is also beautiful it is also seen to bless us and our environment with beauty through its colours. The fish brings the natural world (through being an animal and living in water) into our home or work environment. Dragons in Feng Shui and Chinese culture represent luck, wisdom and power and goldfish are often seen to represent baby dragons. So in that way they also bring luck.

    Dinky, solid and safe

    I took a risk buying this holder and I'm so glad I did. The reason being I enjoy burning incense cones and I wasn't sure if cones would fit on such a small holder next to the goldfish. I'm delighted to confirm they do. The holder is dinky, solid, safe to use, interesting in design and so easy to keep clean. It's very different from holders I've seen on the market. I like it so much I have just placed another order for four more.

    This is a really beautiful and subtle incense holder. I am really impressed by its weight and beauty - I have never seen anything like it anywhere else.

    Combines ancient and modern

    Posted by Nicolas on 8th Feb 2012

    I love this small black holder, as it just seems so very 'Japanese' to me! It is so solid and yet so small and so very well made. It seems to combine both the ancient and modern at the same time. I love it's purity and simplicity and black seems to work here extraordinarily well. I think it is totally unique and I love the Goldfish cast in the water. It also seems very precise/man-made and yet very 'natural' at the same time like a Bonsai Tree's 'Ornamental Beauty'. I'd recommend it to anyone who uses the thicker square Japanese/Tibetan sticks and the sticks fit exactly in the holder.
    I have not tried using the Indian incense sticks in it as it was made primarily for the Japanese sticks and I already have separate holders for the Indian sticks.(much smaller hole).
