Most of Cranes are settled in Asia, Africa and Australia. Especially Asian cranes are the well known kind, I do think it is because of the successful presentations from Asian traditions. Pine and Crane are two classic icons of immortal life, that is also why we always see these two elements together in most of textile art. There used to be a fairy tale in ancient Chinese books, it said the cranes have A thousand years of life normally have grey feathers cover all over the body, but the head's part is totally white. After two thousand years old, their feathers will turn to pure black color. They called them " Black crane". Well of course it is just a fairy tale, they are just different types of cranes in reality. Normally we call them"Hooded Crane". Unfortunately, the amount of this kind of crane are becoming extinct...
As the last episode of Snow crane series, the theme called"Black Crane". I wish they won't really become a fairy tale in the future.
