– ori meaning “folding”, and kami meaning “paper”; is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s. It has since 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 without the use of cut or glue. The best known origami model is probably the Japanese paper crane.
Ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane.
