Japanese embroidery of classic style

Embroidery made by the grandmother of my husband at the beginning of the 20°century, in Japan, with silks in the encroaching past and threads of gold and silver in slept embroidery.

The crane and the tortoise are symbols of longevity.

The crane "Tsuru" is the symbol of our family, because our name means "Valley of cranes"
