By far our most enthusiastically requested DVD from the animal series has been the Crane DVD. Perhaps it is the Crane's rich symbolic meaning in Chinese culture. When a crane is shown among clouds it stands for longevity, wisdom and nobility. When shown among pine trees, the crane symbolizes determination, wealth and power. When two cranes are shown together, it is the ultimate depiction of longevity. There is also a sense of transcendence associated with the crane. Ning details step by step instructions on four different compositions for capturing the multi-faceted spirit of this noble creature.
