Any medium will do.
We try to do a little research first and are always amazed at what we find and where the artists take the themes.
The first creative word of the new year is "goldfish." Goldfish are associated with the Persian New Year, a celebration called, "Nowruz." Nowruz falls at the spring equinox, so it's still two months away. The traditional table would be set with a glass fish bowl to symbolize "life within life."
A plain bowl of water is considered unhealthy, so some plants for oxygen and snails for doing some cleaning up would make a good environment for a goldfish. Goldfish come in many varieties and can survive outside in ponds, too. Not too hot, not too cold.
And who could forget this:
Walt Disney, 1940
