Look closely and you will see animals, beasts and birds all around York Minster, and this summer, you’ll see a few more…
Hovering above the famous Kings’ Screen, nearly 2,000 origami birds are on display adding a spectacular and unique view to this iconic area of the cathedral.
These cranes were made by children to express themselves after a difficult year living with the pandemic, with many featuring messages of hope and prayer.
In Japan cranes symbolise health. A thousand origami cranes are often given to an ill person to wish for their recovery. It is an expression of hope, the Japanese word for this is kibo.
These cranes were made with thoughts of recovery, family and future hopes. They now fly at the heart of York Minster.
With huge thanks to Penny Phillips (artist) and everyone who created this exhibition
