Japanese plovers over waves pattern from 1901-1902

"Plovers are the small birds that live in flocks near water, a popular design motif either alone or combined with sand beaches. The bird is an auspicious symbole associated with longevity because its cry ‘chiya’ is a homonyn for ‘chiyo (‘千代’)’, meaning ‘a thousand generations’."
