Make a wish

About a year ago we visited the Musée du président Jacques Chirac in Sarran, France and I came across this piece of persistence. In Asia, it is commonly said that folding 1000 paper origami cranes makes a person's wish come true. An ancient Japanese legend promises that 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. The crane in Japan is one of the mystical or holy creatures and is said to live for a thousand years. The other picture I found on the internet, it shows how The Thousand Origami Cranes has become a symbol of world peace. Great isn't it?
My new year's resolution should be to fold a thousand of these birds...

By the way, the museum is worth a visit if you're ever in the neighbourhood.
