An elegant pair of Chinese bronze models of standing cranes. Both with long, undulating necks and elongated legs. One portrayed looking up and ahead, the other looking down.
Cranes have long been a symbol of longevity in Chinese culture.
The bronze has a warm and rich patina, with nice casting detail to the feathers.
