Get your hanky out.  These delicately depicted cards depict the ancient Japanese story of Kotota, a sparrow and his wife, who lost their child and turned to faith and become Bhuddist monks.  The story is drawn from a 16th century scroll in the Muromachi era. 

There are 12 different designs to tell the story, 2 each for 24 cards of specialness packed inside the small matchbox packaging.
