nice! i'm 160 cranes into mune, 4 strings of 40 :P i'm glad i finally found someone who strung them like i do! i keep the wings up but like everyone else does it with wings open. are you going to hang the strings separately or like in one big cluster? cause i'm torn and advice would be good :) thanks!!

thank you, meredithelise! :love: i've done 10 strings of 100 and 40 strings of 25 so far. i havent done 20 strings of 50 though...that might be somewhat interesting...i think? honestly, all of my senbazuru are not with me anymore, so i am not sure how they are being hung now. so far, i've done 3 senbazuru; one for a good friend - 10 strings of 100; one for my sister - 40 strings of 25, and she left hers at a shrine in Kyoto, Japan; and the last one for myself. i actually hung it at the Children's Peace Memorial in Hiroshima in April (2010), and that one was 10 strings of 100.

i wish you good luck with your senbazuru! you are almost half way there!! btw, i'm curious, what colors do you use on yours?

The most famous origami -producerin was a japanese girl named Sadako Sasaki. She was just two years old when the atomic bombe exploded in Hiroshima. About nine years later she came down with leukemia... during her disease she started to fold these cranes with the aim of folding 1000 of them - because according to a japanese legend someone who can do so will have a wish fulfilled and at the same time the crane is a symbol for a long and happy life...but unfortunately she died when she had finished about 600. I heard this little story during a short stay in Hiroshima and when I came across with your colourful masterpiece I thought it is worth telling here because these cranes mean so much to the japanese...

...and I keep being curious about your further origami work!

What size paper were you using for these? And how many cranes were on each string?
I've been making 25 strings of 40 cranes each.. I think yours may be smaller than mine?

Beautiful. I love your DD but this truly is breathtaking. I didn't look at the title at first and couldn't figure out what it was, but still loved it because of the line and the flow that you created. Now, it being 1000 cranes makes it even better. :)
