Cranes on a Snowy Pine rug is inspired by a colour woodblock print, first published in the 1830s. Cranes represent longevity and good fortune and are closely associated with wedding ceremonies and the Japanese New Year. The crane is the most popular origami (paper folding) subject and it is customary to make 1000 paper cranes when making a wish. Today 1000 origami cranes has become symbolic of aspirations to world peace. This fabulous rug has a silk design with a robust wool ground.
