In China, cranes were held in high esteem, known as a first rank bird. Their images were embroidered onto the robes of many high-ranking officials. There are multitudes of crane statues, carvings and embroideries within the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace in Beijing. The red-crowned crane is the species mostly depicted in Chinese artwork. It was selected by the Chinese government as the national animal of China.

Mounted to a wooden base, dating to around 1900. (2)
