Hope for Peace 201 300

Hope for Peace (201 - 300)

 

More or less exactly 20 years ago I was in #Japan with a students exchange. End of October 1997 we went on a trip to also visit #Hiroshima and I was completely impressed ba this city and it's history, especially as I'm half German and half Japanese. I was raised in #Peace and thought we were living in a #peaceful time. But as the years went by I got the feeling that we need to be reminded that we should strive for peace and that war cannot be the goal. In Japan there is a legend, that if you fold 1000 #Tsuru (#Cranes) you gain a #wish. So I decided to create 10 #Artworks each with 100 Tsuru building one symbol of peace to remind us all. And to get more attention I'm looking for help to bring these artworks to peace museums or institutions. I hope I can give this one to the Hiroshima Peace Museum. It's completly made out of #handmade #paper on #canvas (140cm x 140cm), the red paper is sponsored for this artwork by #JohnGerard from the #Eifeltormühle. Thank you John
