Perhaps it is to awaken curiosity and craving for new students, an origami master came up with a variety of stories - legends about the importance of origami in human life and history in general. The most important and well-known legend about the Japanese art is directly linked to the most relevant and important origami - paper cranes.
In the East the crane is a symbol of love, faith and hope. Since ancient times people believe that if we make thousands of such figures, and then gave away all their friends and acquaintances, then turns very, very long cherished desire.
The very legend goes something like this. Once upon a time on earth lived a very poor master who dedicated his life to origami and has been remarkably kind to everyone and everything that surrounded him. He has all day consisted of sheets of different figures, and then distributed to children.
But once he met on the road traveling monk and gave him a figure of crane. The monk was touched. Then he said: "put their figures on. Importantly - your belief in their importance. Even if the war around, stay true to his art, and it will thank you by making you rich and famous. "

Angry people decided to burn his shop. But when they were in it, they were amazed at the diversity and magnificence of the figures.
Then the master gave each a figure on the soul and taste. At the front of the guests turned to the master list of crane, which immediately flapped his wings and flew away - he was a messenger of peace. People believed in ourselves, were inspired by and soon the victory was for them.
After the Second World War, Crane became a symbol of peace and freedom. And also a symbol of deliverance from the threat of nuclear and radiation sickness. This is associated with a certain legend, which is very similar to the true story and tells the story of a girl named Sadako Sasaki. She was born in 1943 and in 1945 during the bombing of Hiroshima killed her parents.
She herself was ill with radiation sickness. At the hospital she began to put figures in the paper. Baby believed that the story about thousands of cranes, which grant their wishes - genuine truth. Dreaming of a recovery, it is one of the other folded paper cranes and asked for peace on the planet.
But the dream never came true. Folded only 644 crane, the girl died Oct. 25, 1955. But the idea was picked up a lot of people around the world. And with new crane steel "arrive" in the museum world. Thus, a small paper crane became a symbol of peace.

The girl put a flower in the casket and the next day discovered that still smell really comes from a paper flower. Then she was touched, I realized how strong the love of the poor young man and took his courtship.
