The Peace Tree

The Peace Tree -- decorated with cranes -- is an annual tradition at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine.  The tradition was inspired by Sadako Sasaki, a survivor of Hiroshima who was immortalized in the book Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes.

And, yes, that is a Phoenix lurking the background.
