Hiroshige Cranes Japanese Woodblock Art Print

Regular price £19.00

Antique Japanese woodblock art print by Hiroshige (1797-1858) depicting two red capped cranes from the series '100 famous views of Edo'. Hiroshige, active in the Edo period, was one of the last great masters of the ukiyo-e (pictures of the floating world) colour woodblock printing genre. His work lives on to this day. Cranes represent longevity as they are believed to inhabit the land of the immortals. They are often found on wedding kimono as a symbol of long life for the marriage.
