“Cranes Flying Above The Waves” Pattern
The crane is considered an auspicious bird, symbol of longevity.
The design features cranes that migrate crossing a deep blue ocean. The swell of the waves is expressed through the golden lines. The white of the birds’ wings is an extremely difficult colour, achieved through multiple layers of coating applied with great caution. Another challenge is rendering the beautiful glossy finish for the black of the bodies and wings.
