Waves of the First Rank Framed Print

A framed, mounted print of a reproduction of Waves of the First Rank (detail), Taki Katei (1830-1901) drawing, ink and colour on paper.

Many pictorial themes originated in word-play. In Chinese, ‘court’ and ‘waves’ sound similar, and the emblem of a crane was used on the highest officials’ rank badge, sewn onto their robes to denote their status. The combination of cranes standing beside waves was therefore a wish for a young man to achieve the highest professional success.

The print has been designed and made in the UK exclusively for National Museums Liverpool.
