Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description At the center of the kozuka, a crane stands on the truck of a pine tree. A branch of the tree frames the top of the composition and clusters of pine needles are also at the bottom. Both the crane and the pine are symbols of longevity. The reverse of the kozuka is carved with cat scratches ("nekogame").
