Crane
© Haruyo

2016: Crane (Haruyo)

The crane is a traditional auspicious symbol of happiness and longevity, and here Haruyo combines the cranes decorating the kimono with another pair flying through the sky...

This puzzle forms a pair with the Turtle (E23307): you can combine the two for a giant 4000-piece puzzle!

The artist Morita Haruyo studied both Japanese art and kimono design, and she combines these with elements of her own Western-influenced technique. (She travelled to London in 1977, exactly the year I [Brian Chandler] first came to Tokyo.)

Morita is her family name: she follows the tradition of signing - and sealing - paintings with her given name only.
