What is the art of origami?
Origami is the folding paper’s art, combining two Japanese terms, or, meaning folding, and kami, meaning form. The traditional definition of folding a square sheet of paper, which often has a coloured surface, without any cuts or markings, is called origami. We try to achieve a unique design by intermittently folding the paper.
Some sources state that these papers have existed in China since about 105 AD and that Zhejiang, which emerged as folding papers shortly afterwards, used the same idea. In 900 AD, Yuanbao was one of the main elements of the Chinese funeral. The Chinese used paper mock-ups of the house to burn in their ceremonies, but the Japanese perfected the art of origami or paper folding. Origami has a strong presence in most of Japan’s historical and artistic periods.
Origami is usually a square piece of paper that can be folded into different shapes. Sure, you have seen origami paintings or even tried to make various forms many times, but in the following, our goal is to talk about images that can be made with this origami.
