The Tree of Knowledge



1 in stock


This piece is comprised of 1000 origami cranes, folded largely from vintage books.  Cranes are symbols of wisdom and folding 1000 of them brings blessings – and perhaps the grant of a single wish.  This stylized tree has clusters of three pink cranes as ‘fruit’ on the tree.  The pink cranes are folded from the backing of feminine sanitary pads and could represent feminine wisdom.  The green cranes wrapping the trunk could be the serpent with a fruit in its mouth . . . or a vine bearing fruit . . .
