Origami Brought to a Whole New Level

Stunning Origami Creations.

Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD at the latest and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s. It has since then evolved into a modern art form.

The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be origami. But in the right hands, Origami can be no less a work of art than any painting. The gentle precision of the folds, the creativity and the beauty of it make it a well respected art form.
