In the background, the cranes, symbol of longevity, Mounting of Immortal, are flying over the FUJI MOUNT which challenge time by its opposition to progress.

COMMENT:

-The name IGEZARA was given by people in ARITA to printed plates with rims which were pie-crust shaped and covered with a chocolate-colored glaze. IGE is a Saga prefecture dialect word for thorn. IGEZARA were being made using the copper-plate-paper transfer method in ARITA area by the late 1880s.

-TSURU (crane) is a symbol of good fortune and longevity because of its fabled life span of a thousand years. It also represents fidelity, as Japanese cranes are known to mate for life.

-Snow-capped MOUNT FUJI (3776m) is the tallest and most famous mountain in Japan. It's almost perfectly symmetrical cone shape make it one of the most beautiful volcano in the world, and an indisputable symbol of Japan. The name "Fuji" probably comes from the Ainu word for "fire" or "fiery goddess". A shrine was dedicated to the fiery goddess in 806, but that didn't prevent Fuji-san from errupting violently in 864. The fiery goddess later became the more peaceful "Konohana Sakuya Hime" or "princess of the blossoming trees".
