This Crane is elegant, thoughtful and gorgeous. It is out of handmade fine paper with just right thickness for a larger crane like this. The motif is Kokeshi, Japanese traditional and folklore wooden dolls. Their kimono is red pink, purple and some gold with flower motifs on it.Their hair is black and the face is white. Background is navy blue. My shaping and finishing of the origami crane is original.
Dimensions 8.5in (21.5cm) wide between the ends of two wings
4.25in (10.5cm) in height from the base to the top of the tail.
The crane is mounted on a diamond shaped black foam board on which I wrote in Japanese calligraphy style and in gold "つるの祈り" (tsuru no inori = crane's wishes) and my signature.
