Origami Carp / Fish for Children's Day or Jewish New Year!

My free Origami (Paper Folding) 1st person video-course!

Lesson N. 31 is about:
1) Children's Day, and particularly the Japanese version of this holiday (こどもの日 - Kodomo no hi, previously known as Boys' Day, 端午の節句 - Tango no Sekku).

2) Jewish New Year


1) Children's Day in Japan takes place on May 5, as part of the Golden Week.

"Before this day, families raise the carp-shaped koinobori flags (carp because of the Chinese legend that a carp that swims upstream becomes a dragon, and the way the flags blow in the wind looks like they are swimming)..."

(Source: wikipedia).


2) But this carp (also called "gefilte fish") is also eaten during the celebrations for Jewish New Year (Rosh haShanah).

"In Jewish liturgy Rosh Hashanah is described as "the day of judgment" (Yom ha-Din) and "the day of remembrance" (Yom ha-Zikkaron). Some midrashic descriptions depict God as sitting upon a throne, while books containing the deeds of all humanity are opened for review, and each person passing in front of Him for evaluation of his or her deeds."

(source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosh_Has...)

"Among religiously observant Jews, gefilte fish has become a traditional Shabbat food to avoid borer, which is one of the 39 activities prohibited on Shabbat outlined in the Shulchan Aruch. Borer, literally "selection/choosing," would occur when one picks the bones out of the fish, taking "the chaff from within the food.""
(source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gefilte_...)


This model can be decorated according to one's tastes: I decided to try (with my favourite photo-retouch software and plug-ins) to reproduce colors and patterns of some ornamental carps (a carp is a fish), like Kohaku (紅白), GinRin Kohaku, Goromo.
