Crane Envelope Set

Crane Envelope Set

2.4" x 4"
Paper & Ink, Handprinted
JAPAN

Envelopes for giving money
to show your appreciation.
To give money alone
is too obvious
and also uncouth.
The Red-Crowned Crane in Japan
is a symbol of luck, longevity and fidelity.
It is as tall as me and
it is said to live for a 1,000 years.
In terms of the message it gives
when combined with money -
I feel this is very positive.
