Delicate Origami Art
Who would have thought that a type of old Japanese folk art would become so world-wide popular? Origami has developed into several levels of folding, and it is amazing what you can make out of only paper.
This art form goes way back, to the 17th century, and from then people’s folding skills have surely improved a lot. The examples shown here are so impressive that they deserve to be represented; you can even see one that is so tiny you almost can’t see it. They are all the work of Brian Chan from Millbrae in California. As you may notice he used a lot of animal motives, and that is maybe because it in particular has always been associated with origami since people started folding the classic origami swans and cranes that are supposed to be “easy” to fold.
The more folds the more difficult they are to make no matter what size, but I guess he had to use tweezers to fold the tiny ones that are smaller than a coin. Speaking of Japanese art works, you should take a look at this amazingly big Gundam made only out of cardboard.
