Background

Origami, the art of paper folding, is a pastime that has existed in Japan since at least the Heian period (794 – 1185 AD) and is enjoyed by people all over the world to this day. True origami only contains folds, though there are some who use glues and other modelling sprays to create smoother looking designs. These designs can range from simple Samurai helmets and paper cranes to some extremely intricate realistic animal pieces by origami masters.
