Check out these little guys! Carefully hand made origami animals, made entirely out of paper, no cutting, just folding. Origami is a traditional Japanese folk way of folding paper into decorative shapes and figures, the art of folding like this started around the 17th century and was later popularised during the mid 1900s. Since then, the technique has become vastly popular, making it a modern art form. Origami is basically two words put together, 'Ori' meaning folding and 'Kami' meaning paper.
