Fish Cannot live in Pure Water

I am listing this item on e-bay for bid.

The calligraphy on this wallscroll or Kakejiku is in the kaisho style. The cloth is a cotton, with a swirling design. The Ichimonji is a blue with koi in the pattern. The meaning is that, "if the water is too pure, a fish is not able to live in this environment." It is completed with a plastic ivory jikusaki and a Kon (Navy) hanging string.
