The Ashmolean is the University of Oxford’s museum of art and archaeology, founded in 1683. This beautiful hanging was presented to the Ashmolean Museum in 1958 by Sir Herbert Ingram, who travelled to Japan on his honeymoon in 1908. In Japanese culture the crane represents good fortune and longevity and is known as ‘the bird of happiness’ – a fitting subject for a newly-married couple.
