100 Wishes

Japanese legend has it that anyone who folds a thousand paper cranes would be granted a wish.

“In July 2007, a ‘Wish’ event was held in the hospital. The response was overwhelming with over 200 staff, patients and visitors participating by writing their wish on the origami paper. A total of 168 wishes were received which I have folded from these original wish messages and lacquered for preservation.”

– Artist Barbara Lee
