Three lovely cranes pause as they pass by a fir tree. The Japanese Red Crown Crane is fabled to bring Happiness and a Long Life to the viewer.
This image is so simple yet so evocative. There are splashes of carmine on the crest of each bird but the rest of the picture is quiet and subdued. The simple background of natural silk colour adds to the quiet reflective tone.
