What do cranes represent?
Cranes originated from an ancient Japanese myth, which believed that the gods would give a wish to anyone who folded 1,000 karaoke birds from origami. A crane is a fictional creature that claims to have lived for 1,000 years. Therefore, the Japanese paper crane represents eternal hope, happiness, and healing.
