Colin Anderson and the 1,000 Cranes

12/13/2016 ISO 1200 Magazine 0 Comments



In Japanese folklore, the allegory of the 1,000 Cranes says that a single wish will be granted by the Gods to a person that can fold one thousand origami paper cranes.


In 1955, 12-year-old Sadoko Sasaki was a girl irradiated at the age of two by the atomic bomb dropped over Hiroshima who popularized the tale while dying from resultant leukemia.



In addition to a statue of Sasaki at Hiroshima, where locals to this day leave folded cranes in memory, a display to memorialize her efforts had been planned by Hawaiian Historic Parks for installation in Pearl Harbor to stand symbolically as a plea for peace.
