This wooden bird music box is elegantly embellished with mother of pearl design of a pair of cranes delighting in a romantic moment on a pine tree wrought by the intricate mother of pearl inlaying technique. The harmony between the colored Korean mulberry paper and the iridescence of the mother of pearl design makes it a memorable item for any collection.

This music box plays the famous Korean folk song, "Arirang." "Arirang" is so popular in Korea that it might be called the national folk song. The words have to do with the longing and weary feeling of having been jilted by a lover. Arirang was sung by ordinary people during their hard times to help them overcome fatigue and anguish.
