Paper Crane

This collection is based on my love for folding paper cranes, whenever, where ever. In Japan the crane is a mystical creature and is believed to live for a thousand years. The Japanese refer to the crane as the ‘Bird of Happiness’.

This origami animal is starting to become known around the world as a tangible form of prayer for peace or a way to show of support for people facing difficult challenges. The wings of the crane were believed to carry souls up to paradise.
