Origami makers take form to new heights
Kazuji Kushiro’s origami named “Biodiversity: the connection of life” is a large work displaying 17 kinds of plants and animals, including monkeys, owls and sunflowers, in a field. The piece expresses the artist’s hope that viewers will feel connected to other living things through the work.
Other unique origami on display include a pine bonsai and maple bonsai made of paper cranes stacked on top of each other, bindweeds formed using origami and colored paper, and Santa Claus.
“Origami has an infinite number of possibilities,” an official of the association said. “It all depends on the imagination of the creator.”
Such creative works of art are sure to stimulate the senses of everyone who sees them and will make a fan out of anyone. The museum not only displays unique and intricate pieces but also sells about 500 kinds of colorful origami paper.
