Kinko is a Daoist sage known as Sennin in Japanese. According to Chinese legend, once a sennin has realized ther way of Dao, they can live to a thousand years of age, and remain youthful in appreance like children. Kinko was an artist who painted fish but would neither eat or harm them. For reason of his virtue, the Dragon King sent forth a giant carp and invited Kinko to visit his palace in the sea world. As depicted in this netsuke, during the return from his sojourn, riding on his attribute of a carp Kinko Sennin meets Kannon, the scroll he hands to Bodhisattva of Great Compassion illustrate the Buddhist principle of protecting the lives of all livings, and the merrit of Kinko Sennin has reached the divine.
