Bracelet in 925 Silver and Mother of Pearl

It is not easy to frame the symbolism of fish in a univocal way: in fact they take on a particular meaning and symbolic tradition from culture to culture, from religion to religion.

The Fish in Christianity

Fish in Greek is called IXTHYC (ichtùs). Arranged vertically, the letters of this word form an acrostic: Iesùs Christòs Theòu Uiòs Sotèr = Jesus Christ Son of God Savior . the fish, being an animal that lives underwater without drowning, symbolized Christ, who can enter death while remaining alive.

When threatened by the Romans, in the first centuries after Christ, Christians marked meeting places and graves with the classic sign of the fish and also used it to distinguish friends from enemies. According to an ancient story, when a Christian met a stranger on the street, the Christian drew an arc on the ground and if the stranger completed the drawing with an opposite arc, he too identified himself as a Christian.

Even before Christians, Greeks, Romans and other pagans used the fish symbol, so this symbol attracted little suspicion, making the fish sign a perfect secret symbol for persecuted believers. Therefore the first Christians made use of it mainly for convenience. The fish, however, also had many theological tones, because Jesus fed 5,000 people with 2 fish and 5 loaves. Jesus also called his disciples "fishers of men" .

A further interpretation derives from the astrological determinations of the Pisces era. The conjunction between the planet Jupiter and the planet Saturn took place in the year 7 BC (probably the true year of Christ's birth) 3 times in the zodiac sign of Pisces; moreover, the vernal equinox also falls under this sign.

We therefore wanted to see in Jesus the first incarnation of the age of the world placed under the sign of Pisces.

In reference to the Ichtys , people recently converted to Christianity were defined as “ pesciculi” and the fish itself was considered, together with the bread, as the symbol of the divine meal. Christian speculation drew attention to the fact that, just as fish were not affected by God's curse during the global flood, so Christians would become fish-like through baptism.

The fish among the eight Tibetan symbols of auspiciousness

The Eight Auspicious Symbols, also called Eight Precious Symbols , constitute one of the oldest and best known groups of symbols of Tibetan culture. They are already present starting from the canonical texts of Indian Buddhism, that is, in the texts written in Pali and in Sanskrit. These are objects, animals or plants which served as ritual objects or which in any case were identified as signs of prestige. Always used in traditional ceremonies and on special occasions, they have assumed increasing importance over the centuries.

The eight symbols of good omen are often found repeated on the kate (the Tibetan scarf of good luck and blessing), banners, tapestries, tangkas, flags, bracelets, necklaces and engraved on the most disparate objects. They can also decorate walls and beams, the sides of thrones and many other objects of both religious and profane use. They are also traced on the ground with white powder when the passage of some important religious or civil personality is expected.

Golden fish (in Sanskrit suvarnamatsya , in Tibetan gser-nya ) are a religious symbol used since ancient times. Originally in India the sacred rivers of the Ganges and Yamuna were represented with fish. The two fish are parallel and face each other vertically or cross slightly.

Fish represent the overcoming of all obstacles, the victory over all suffering and the achievement of liberation, free in having acquired the awareness of the ultimate nature, just as fish swim free in the water by their very nature.
