They say that for a  very difficult wish, come true, one to have to fold 1000 paper cranes. Sadako Sasaki, a 12 years Japanese girl who lived the tragedy of the bombing of Hiroshima and its aftermath hit 644 and died. Mademoiselle Maurice is a young French artist of 28 years, who has created these magnificent installations with origami, international symbol of peace. This is inspired by the events surrounding the Fukushima nuclear explosion. Since then, children around Japan send paper cranes to Hiroshima, in memory of Sadako. So she created a memorial to Sadako with the message: “This is our cry, this is our prayer, to build peace in the world”.
