Two cranes soaring in the air are depicted on the lacquer plate. There is a proverb in Japan that goes, "Cranes live a thousand years, and turtles live ten thousand years." Apair of cranes represent not only longevity but also lifelong bond. Therefore, they often appear in weddings or family reunions as symbols of peace and prosperity. In particular, the red-crowned crane is seen as the "king of cranes." Its popularity is seen throughout Japan, on print patterns or strung together as decorations.
