Qin Gao from China 周代

Kinko, who lived beside a river and was a painter of fish.
One day a giant carp offered to take him for a ride into the realm of the immortals. He returned after a month, telling his followers never to kill another fish. He then jumped into the river, where he was transformed into a carp himself.
Kinko is usually shown reading a Taoist scroll while riding on the back of the magical fish.
