辰 (tatsu)
dragon

=====================

This top depicts a dragon. Hiroi-sensei made this top coinciding with the zodiac year of the dragon. In his interview, he mentions that it is also related to the story of the previous top in the collection, “the one-eyed koi”, which is about a koi who wishes to become a dragon and ascend to the heavens.

Hiroi Michiaki: This is the dragon from the [zodiac] year of the dragon. The koi, you know, wanted to be this. Heh heh heh. Do you get it? I’ll explain. Heh heh heh. I wonder if you got about half of it. Heh heh heh.
