“Childhood dream” by Millo in Shanghai, China

Painting for the “Color The Way Of Love” project, the Italian painter once again brought to life some of his signature imagery with this 3D-like piece entitled “Childhood Dream”.

In the Chinese culture the goldfish is a symbol of  wealth and the association of goldfish with good fortune is reinforced by ancient legends.
Some of them tell the story of a period of drought ending when the world’s first goldfish jumped out of a well, others have goldfish appearing since the beginning of time.
In art, paintings of fish have been found on Chinese artifacts dating from as early as 8,000 BC and goldfish can be found in Chinese art until nowadays.
Goldfish not only represent fortune, but the notion that it is possible for everybody to achieve whatever they want.
