Illustration for He Ming Jiu Gao
(Cranes Cry in the Nine Marshpools)
鶴鳴九皋圖
Dancing Cranes, by Edgar Francisko Jimenez

The inscription with the painting at right quotes from the Shen Qi Mi Pu preface to He Ming Jiu Gao:

"When they feel a heavenly breeze they dance....
When they see the divine they cry out."

Listen to a recording of He Ming Jiugao from my CD
