The theme of this float comes from a Chinese legend that if a carp (koi in Japanese) could swim up ryumon (a waterfall), it would become a dragon. The figure of the carp on this float is quite realistic, vivid and beautiful, as if a living carp is jumping up the waterfall. The shrine on this float is dedicated to Susano-o no Mikoto”, a powerful deity in Japanese mythology. The designs of most of the tapestries describe stories of the Trojan War in Greek literature. They were produced in the 16th century in Brussels, Belgium.
