In Japan, crane is a mystical creature and is believed to have lived for a thousand years. As a result, in the Japanese, Chinese and Korean culture, the crane represents good fortune and longevity. The Japanese refer to the crane as the “Bird of happiness”. In Japan, the crane or tsuru, is a national treasure. It is the symbol of longevity and good luck because it was thought to have a life span of a thousand years.  Tsuru are also monogamous, therefore, often used for wedding decor. Similarly in China, the crane is the most popular bird symbolizing longevity and auspiciousness. The Chinese also embroidered cranes on their clothing and their images are seen in many ancient paintings as they also represent happiness and a soaring spirit, capturing the beautiful way it soars through the skies. Longevity, a long life, is the main traditional Chinese meaning for the Crane. Wisdom that comes with age, is an often associated meaning and in Feng Shui the influence of a Chinese Crane painting is for a long life that increases in wisdom. The Crane has long been an auspicious symbol and next to the Phoenix is the most important bird in Chinese legends and Chinese art. The Crane is believed to be immortal and is the commonest of the many symbols meaning longevity. It is a very common symbol and is depicted frequently on Chinese paintings within China. It is also a Chinese symbol for wisdom and is sometimes called the "heavenly" or "blessed" Crane. The death of a Taoist priest is said to be them "turning into a feathered Crane." The Chinese Crane is said to manifest a peculiar interest in human affairs and it is often associated with old age and also with good luck.

Hello! My name is Jung and I'm an experienced gemstone painter based out of Hanoi, Vietnam. An interesting art form of Vietnam and other countries in the region is gemstone painting, whereby powdered or very small gemstones are used to create beautiful and colorful pictures. The art form is said to have originated in Rajasthan, India, but spread throughout Asia. Gemstone art is colorful, durable and uses crushed gemstone fragments that would otherwise be disregarded or deemed only suitable for industrial use because they are too small for use in jewelry. To make these paintings, the stones are sorted by color, washed, dried, crushed and then cleaned before being sprinkled over a clear glass or mica sheet and affixed with glue. The beauty of such pictures is that they sparkle with color that does not fade or deteriorate, and the artwork helps to support local miners, who would otherwise have to sell tiny or low-quality stones at very low prices. Synthetic colors often do not come close to the colors of nature, so these gemstone paintings are a sight to behold. These paintings can be bought at the Yen The morning gemstone market as well as other places nearby, and now from me through Verlocal!
