This ukiyo-e (wood block print) by an unknown artist depicts the red crown white napped Japanese crane (tsuru), a national treasure considered sacred and a symbol of longevity and good luck. Since they are monogamous and thought to live 1,000 years, they are depicted on formal wedding gowns. And the tradition of folding 1,000 paper cranes is associated with the promise of health, happiness and peace. A Japanese idiom, “tsuru no hito koe“ (鶴の一声 or つるのひとこえ), translates as, "one word from the crane," meaning the "voice of authority,” namely, one who has the final word and is not challenged. Available in unisex (shows as "men's") youth M and L and adult S, M, L, XL, and XXL.
