A haunting presentation of the traditional Japanese legend of the Crane Wife in calligraphy and textured paintings in earth tones is set in a 19th century New England ship building and sailing environment. Multiple meanings within quilt patterns, borders along with other visual details further enrich a beautiful, original adaptation of this tale of rescue, greed and sacrifice. (Age 7 and older)
