This lovely Golden Cranes Screen is a stunning example of an ancient Oriental art. Built from sturdy elm wood, it has been gilded with authentic gold leaf and individually hand painted with cranes in a garden. The Chinese Red-crowned Crane is the primary symbol of longevity in Chinese culture due to their extremely long lifespan (50 to 60 years). It is pictured here within a traditional landscape scene on a gold leaf background. The graceful arches of the panels make this a lovely focal point for any room.
