Fold Origami Cranes as a Tribute to Victims of 9/11

“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.” ~Buddha

“Peace goes into the making of an origami crane as flour goes into the making of bread.” ~Pablo Neruda

Origami cranes were offered to visitors at the WTC Tribute Center to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Cranes are traditional paper birds from Japan. They symbolize peace, good health, and longevity.

  1. Thank you so much for these videos! This model was one of the first models I did-and now I think back to how far I’ve come in origami. Your videos have helped me so much, thank you!

    • Hi Isabel, I’m very happy to hear that you have made progress with your origami by watching our origami videos. Thank you for sharing with us, and keep up with your gook work!

  2. “tsuru origami” is the best way to describ meaning of” peace”.
    I really consider AKIRA YOSHIZAWA as the best designer.
    I hope that a new generation will find a spirt of this art.
