Three cranes of varying colors and sizes...hand-created, though not with the perfect precision, they serve as models for origami paper folding. Do you know the story of Sadako and the Thousand Cranes? A poignant and personal view of a sad historical period - and, yet, a symbolism of hope and anticipation, as well. I've always been fascinated by origami, not only for its art form and representation, but also for duo nature of simplicity and complexity, a recurring theme! Naples, FL

  1. I know the story well. Years ago I had a couple of children from Japan in my grade one class. It was amazing how they could create all kinds of origami shapes.
