Crane

The graceful crane is a common emblem in paintings. The five birds: crane, phoenix, mandarin duck, heron and wagtail represent the five Confucian relationships; in this case the crane stands for the key deference of son to father. Two cranes flying towards the sun represent ambition. A crane among clouds represent nobility; a pair of cranes represent a wish for long married life while a crane in pine trees a wish for a long life together.
Emblem of rank: Civil Official 1st rank.
