Lucky omen, bountiful harvests, longevity

This elegant pattern combining clouds and cranes was favored as one of the traditional yushoku patterns of the nobility during the Heian Period (794-1185), representing people of excellent character. Fukurokuju, one of the Seven Lucky Gods, was worshiped as the god of happiness (fuku), wealth (roku), and longevity (ju). He was also depicted together with cranes, who were said to live for a thousand years.
