The top of this lacquer box reproduces a detail from Maruyama Ōkyo's set of screens that is in LACMA's collections. Black lacquer sides set off the beautiful top. The black lacquer interior is lined top and bottom with fabric.
Cranes are some of the most majestic and endangered birds in the world. One of the rarest is the red-crowned crane (Grus japonensis) which stands almost 5 feet tall. Artist Maruyama Ōkyo may have chosen to depict this crane with a white-naped crane (Grus vipio), distinguised by its grey body and pink legs, because they often nest near each other.
Red-crowned cranes usually mate for life and are symbols of love, longevity and peace.
