Ohaedo fish paintings are an ancient Korean symbol of eternal vigilance, because fish never close their eyes. During the Joseon Period, it was popular to give fish paintings to children to instill in them this important life lesson. This is a splendid example of the ancient tradition of Ohaedo (Korean fish painting). Frame: 40.5 x 24 inches, 103 x 61 cm; Painting: 24.5 x 17.5 inches, 62 x 44.5 cm.
