Thanks Anthony. I think I've got the date.  :D I assume that's South Korea?

The crane is an auspicious symbol in East Asia. Maybe this is because they eat insects and frogs in rice fields. They can famously be made of origami paper.

Thanks again for the extra info. Not a story I was familiar with, although I have dabbled a bit in origami. On a good day, I can still make a frog. :D
