The picture above illustrates a visual contemplation of the wishes of humankind with an attempt to elevate consciousness towards the manifestation of peace on earth.
Japanese legend from the 11th century at Kakamura, describes a feudal leader celebrating a Buddhist festival in which birds and animals were set free, by releasing hundreds of cranes as thanksgiving after a successful battle.  Each crane had a prayer strip attached on its leg to pray for those killed in battle, therefore associating the crane with the celebration of peace and prayers for those lost in war.
According to Japanese folklore the indigenous red hooded crane has a reputation for long life (at least a thousand years) and prosperity, thus becoming a symbol of good health.  Origami paper cranes became a popular gift for those who were ill.
"Sadako And The Thousand Paper Cranes" written by Edna Ritzenberg describes the poignant story of two-year old girl who survived the horrific atom bomb at Hiroshima, only to succumb to leukemia 11 years later.  During her final months in hospital her friend gave her a golden paper crane there by stimulating her to fold a thousand paper cranes as it was told that her wish of being healed would come true. At Hiroshima today there is a memorial and a statue of Sadako in dedication of her courage and stands as a reminder of the devastation results of war.

In her hands sits a golden paper crane.


With humble thanks.
