This is a handcrafted folding fan, and the image painted on it where three cranes perch on pine trees with the moon up in the sky as bright as day, was executed in the form of a traditional painting. The back has red straps to tie up the fan when it is folded. Part of the traditional symbols of longevity, the pine tree and the crane are often used as iconography for New Year’s greetings. In a review article Nam June Paik contributed to The Korean Free Press in January 1959, regarding the 1958 Darmstadt International Summer Courses for New Music he participated, Paik explains that the new music by John Cage is something that “only counts the pure time that is not filled with anything” “similarly to the growth of the pine tree.” In 1992, he produced a robot sculpture entitled Crane using antique radios and dial telephones.
