Fish symbol history

Fish once had great meaning for European christians and were included in many religious paintings. In Christian symbolism, fish is a symbol of Christ, and can be seen depicted in many still life paintings, usually as food. Later when the values of European society changed, fish symbolism began to lose its sacred meaning and became a more utilitarian symbol.

One the most famous fish art works is the classical painting The Sacred Fish by Giorgio de Chirico. Credited as the founder of the metaphysical movement which planted the seed for surrealism, the Italian painter’s intention was to record the emotional impact of imagined experience rather than the external world. In this painting the familiar still life fish on a plate is transformed into a piranha-like creature.

Gyotaku is a form of traditional Japanese fish art that began out of practical and educational necessity, rather than spiritual or decorative purposes. It began because fisherman needed to keep a record to the fish they caught. They did this by printing the fish onto rice paper. They’d apply ink to one side of the fish they’d just caught, wrap it in paper and rub it on the inked side to create a print of the fish. Later this became a method synonymous with Japanese fish art and today artists also add colours and details of the fish and its environment to the final print.
