Keepsake Crane pics

The Keepsake Crane is a beautiful floral decoration or placecard with cultural Japanese and Jewish significance as a crane with a stone enclosed. In Asia, a crane stands for peace, healing and long-life, and in Judaism this item will help you hold onto someone or something in a peaceful way forever, given a natural rock can placed on a grave and has permanence.
