Chi-Chi the Goldfish
Make your very own Chi-Chi the Goldfish with these cool PDF templates.
Inspired by the Fantail goldfish, we designed this pendant paper sculpture.
During 17 century the goldfish symbolized good luck and fortune in southern Europe.
It became a tradition for married men to give their wives a goldfish on their first anniversary, as a symbol of the prosperous years to come.
