Our Creative Director and his family created an origami crane installation during the lock down over the Easter holiday. Three weeks ago Karl set himself and his family a creative challenge to make an origami crane for each person who had lost their life to Covid 19 in the UK. It became apparent very quickly as the days went by that they could not create the birds quick enough to reach the total. A very sad sign of how quickly the numbers were increasing daily. In Japanese culture the origami crane is made for the sick in the hope they get well. On one of the worst hit days the UK saw the daily death toll touch almost 1000. Our installation of 1000 paper birds symbolises how many lives were taken away from family and friends.
Thank you to all the NHS staff who care for these souls before they leave us
