Japan Earthquake Relief: A symbolic charity accessory

Competition Details

Lotus Sutra, Lotus of Tomorrow

by Simonida Uth

When we say "Origami" we immediately think of Japan. My choice of an Origami Lotus as a pin/broach is the most logical symbol to show support for the victims of the earthquake and tsunami, and to proudly to wear it on one's lapel.
My "Lotus Sutra/Tomorrow" is conceived as a complete form of Buddhist practice like that of the followers of Nichiren (a 13th-Century Japanese teacher.)
My second concept is 1,000 cranes for good luck...for the Japanese people.
