Hidetomo Kimura writes that the kingyo is “artwork created by human hand” since these goldfish are domesticated and commonly live in fish bowls.

Inspired by the kingyo‘s natural simplicity and drawing from his Japanese ancestry, Kimura creates “Japonism space” and “living artwork” as an art aquarium artist, he says.
