Inspired by the legend of the 1000 cranes and the story of Sadako Sasaki, she folds hundreds of miniature origami cranes which later become beautifully delicate Bonsai trees of various colors and styles.

“Since ancient times, Japanese people have been mindful of natural phenomenon. While confronting our fears of the natural world, we worship and co-exist in harmony with nature. As one symbol of nature, trees possess a life force which lies in all natural things,” Naoki writes on her blog. “I’ve tried to endow my artworks with this energy. Through looking at my works, I hope you can feel this life force too.”
