Monotone and antitone functions
(not over ℝ just the domain you see = 0<x<1⊂ℝ)
These are examples of invertible functions.

oh my goodness is this a HOUSE

This is so contempo. cas. even though it’s legit 18th century painting.
Carp and Waterfall ca. 1785. Maruyama Okyo (1733-1795).
円山応挙 龍門鯉魚図
This is tapping into the (that’s funny that… Tap/Waterfall…okay not enough coffee swilling yet) the Chinese legend of a carp becomes a dragon after swimming up a waterfall of the Yellow River.  It’s like the Lil’-Engine-That-Could in fishy form.

~Hakuin Ekaku
From Wiki:  “Hakuin Ekaku (白隠 慧鶴, January 19, 1686 - January 18, 1768) was one of the most influential figures in Japanese Zen Buddhism. He revived the Rinzai school from a moribund period of stagnation, refocusing it on its traditionally rigorous training methods integrating meditation and koan practice. Hakuin’s influence was such that all Rinzai Zen masters today trace their lineage through him (and thus through the Ōtōkan lineage), and all modern practitioners of Rinzai Zen use practices directly derived from his teachings.”
