Japanese Kurēn screen
This large two-panel screen with five walking cranes surrounded by pine trees is painted on a beige/gold background framed with black wood. In Japan, pine trees and cranes are a typical symbolic duo. According to Japanese symbolism, cranes have a thousand-year lifespan and are potent representations of youth and longevity in both literature and art. Additionally, pine trees symbolize perseverance, good fortune, and longevity.
In Japan, folding screens are used as decoration and furniture. The Japanese word "byōbu," which means "folding screen," is made of two characters: byō, which denotes a wall, fence, or screen, and bu, which can alternatively be pronounced as "fu," which denotes wind. The byōbu's primary purpose was to provide wind protection.
