Selling Yourself

Attributed to Huizong, Auspicious Cranes, 1112, Chinese Handscroll, Laioning Provincial Museum, Shenyang.
The appearence of 20 cranes at a festival was taken as a sign that Heaven had blessed the Emporer's rule, this work was produced by the Emporer as a piece of propaganda. Huizong was the Emperor.
