Crane Lovers

Unfurled wings, stretching

for halcyon days, loyal

partners forever.

    1. Thank you. I’m impressed that you know the artist. I found it for inspiration and do appreciate its beauty despite the age marks. It was made available in digital form by the Library of Congress.

      1. We love the C19th Japanese woodblock print artists. I have seen a lot of his work in the National Art Museum in Tokyo. I also have books on him. A late friend of ours collected original prints including some Hokusai when he was in the occupation army in the later 1940’s. His wife still has them.
