thousand origami cranes to Japan

by Carolina DAlençon


My proposal is the Japanese legend of a "thousand origami cranes", that promises to anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury.

As the crane in Japan is one of the mystical or holy creatures, represents the Japan's recovery and relief. To the globalized world, this image is universal, needs no translation. It is a powerful symbol which by itself transmits the concepts aforementioned.
