Ever since my internet pal Ben of Carnet de Dessins told me that some of my koi look like amphora, I’ve begun looking more at antique vases.  And sure enough they look just like my koi!  Well, except for the various decorations that cover their surfaces which are very different from the decorations that cover the koi.

One of my koi amphora appears here.  I’d say he’s also a little bit volcanic.

The main difference between a koi and a volcano is that with the volcano stuff comes out, whereas with the koi stuff goes in.  And the difference between the amphora and the koi is that the amphora will contain things, whereas stuff doesn’t stay inside the koi long before it exits from  — um — another corridor.
