The prayer flags are in the Ruth and Carl J. Shapiro Family Courtyard dinning area of the MFA. They are in memory of those who lost their lives and were injured in the Boston bombing. The individual flags are made by quilter from all over the world. It is titled “To Boston With Love”.
I’d seen the prayer flags in many places in Asia. Seeing them here was very comforting. They are so many in this Courtyard the single picture does not do it justice.
There is a link to a Boston Globe article that includes information about the prayer flags. Scroll down to the 4th paragraph.
