Description: This large-format print is a woodblock reproduction of a screen painting from the early 1700s. It was made by the Tansei-sha company (from Kyoto) in the early 1980s, as part of a set of reproductions of Rinpa and Kano schools of painting masterworks.

This print depicts a flock of seven red crown cranes, all looking to the left and very well aligned. Black, white and tones of grays are employed for their feathered bodies. The line of the design is surely simple but gives each one of them a very elegant and stylized allure.

The shimmering mica background that simulates gold leaf as well as the square motif pattern that probably simulates a wall, adds some texture to the whole composition even though there is no real perspective.
