For the Japanese, the crane—or tsuru—is considered a national treasure, appearing in art, literature, and folklore. The Japanese regard the crane as a symbol of good fortune and longevity because of its fabled life span of a thousand years. Bernice Lau, who hails from Singapore, aspires for a thousand cranes to come together through teaching people this ancient Japanese craft of putting tsurus together by assembling treated fish bones of a fish head.  Come visit Bernice at the Penang Mini Maker Faire as she exhibits and shares this intriguing yet beautiful pieces of art.
