Crane, Fledglings, Pine, and Rising Sun Kakemono, 1854
Comments - Terrific kakemono or vertical diptych of a crane perched on the branch of a pine tree, watching the fledglings in the nest below fluttering their wings. A red sun rises in the distance. A beautiful image and a fantastic design. A rarely seen Hiroshige design.
