Cranes are monogamous and are birds that spend their lives together until one of them gets missing for some reason. They have been depicted often since ancient times as a symbol of marital harmony.
In this work, the relationship between the couple’s cranes is beautifully depicted by a Japanese-style painter Nonaka Shihō, who had a distinctive style of painting based on sketching. The feathers drawn skillfully using “gofun” white pigments are especially beautiful and impressive.
