[original work by Village of Joy]

If some of you wonder “What the hell is Origami?”, lets cite our beloved Wikipedia: “Origami (origami) (from oru meaning “folding”, and kami meaning “paper”) is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding. The goal of this art is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably without the use of gluing or cutting the paper,and using only one piece of paper”

Maybe not all of the art works here were done using only one peace of paper, but nevertheless they all look really impressive. Have a good time scrolling down the list!
