FLIGHT TO GALWAY

Three-hundred hand-folded, large-scale origami sculptures grace this beautiful atrium. Travelling as a supposed flock each crane is individually folded, taking its inspiration and giving reference to the ancient tradition of paper folding.

The sculpture is symbolic of good fortune, freedom, long life and the harmonious passage into the afterlife.
