This piece illustrates a scene of court ladies and chubby toddlers watching goldfish. The elegance and gentleness of court ladies pose an interesting contrast to the liveliness and vitality of the children. Goldfish has long been seen as an auspicious token of wealth and nobility based on the homonym of its name “jin yu” and “gold and jade” in the Chinese language.
