"In China as elsewhere, the Crane is seen as a good omen, a messenger of the gods, and a bearer of maternal love and happiness. It brings high status, longevity, and immortality, and symbolizes spiritual enlightenment. In parts of Africa and North America the crane was associated with wisdom." From The Illustrated Book of Signs & Symbols, by Miranda Bruce-Mitford.

Many of the textile collages I create are inspired by the Asian art displayed in tokonomas alcoves. Tokonomas were the sacred center of a traditional Japanese home, and reserved for treasured items like scrolls or calligraphy, beautiful kimonos, ikebana flower arrangements, miniature bonsai trees, and fine ceramics for tea ceremonies. The items displayed were changed for special occasions, according to the season, or to create different settings and atmospheres.
