The red crowned crane has a very special place in Japanese folklore as a symbol of long life and happiness. It has for thousands of years been portrayed in sculpture, crafts and especially painting. The charisma of the crane is not surprising in view of its size, elegant form and clear contrasting colors - white, black and red The other reason for its special place is that the cranes mate for life. The appearance of the crane and its pair bonding behavior combine to produce a visual spectacle almost unsurpassed in the natural world. - RB

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
