I am often surprised by how seriously people take their origami, the masters can create some really amazing pieces.
Not Just The Chinese
Although the origins are traced to China, there are independent paper folding traditions found in some European countries as well.
When I start looking for images I find them from global locations and everything from quick and simple to elaborate, detailed works of paper art.
I Can’t Do It
It is truly amazing how a flat sheet of paper can become a beautiful unicorn in motion by just folding in the right places. I know I’ve tried my hand at folding (horses of course). About 20 frustrated minutes and 20 sheets of wasted paper later, I’m not ashamed to say I gave up.
