Funny Fuseki

I found by chance this photo of an Asian ad (the ad is for a Chinese resort, but I am not sure if it is displayed in Japan or in China). What is really strange is that even in Asia they would make up (almost) random positions when Go / Baduk /Weiqi boards are displayed:

Unless the position is that high and unusual on purpose and the ad has some very deep message, but I somehow doubt that :-)

(Here is the source of the photo).

    “Let us put the stones here, it looks much nicer like this…” And the stones are exactly in the middle of the shown part of the board, now. But what are these green-red “stones”, 4 player Go? :)

    The green-red stuff looks like fish to me.
    (Or is it sushi?)

    Try it out in some games! Why not? It should be completely refreshing to try sort of openings like that.

    To me it looks like the constellation Big dipper/Great bear. Thou I don’t know if they know it in China and what would be it’s meaning anyway.
