My object is an origami crane (a paper bird).

 

I received this object at a wedding of a friend who gave all his guests a crane. The couple is not Japanese, but a Japanese legend says that if you make 1000 cranes then the crane will grant the maker one wish to come true. There were strings of cranes all over the yard where the wedding was held. I keep the crane on the dashboard of our car. I keep it because it is pretty, fragile, and reminds me of the nice time we had at the wedding in San Francisco.
