Colors for peace

Colors for peace 

This endless number of origami cranes is a japanese symbol of peace originated in Hiroshima after the explosion of the atomic bombs when a little girl started to fold them in the hope that this will help her to survive. But she died.

In the memory of this girls people continued to fold this cranes and bringing them to the temples and shrines in the hope of a better and peaceful world.
