Works of art can come in many forms; from paintings to sculptures to literature and even origami, the art of folding paper to create shapes. Most of us are aware that origami has its origins in China, but did you know that Japan and even Europe began folding paper as a pastime in their own separate traditions in the 17th and 18th Century? There you go, that’s your history lesson for the day.
Presented to you are eight tiny pieces of origami that are so small, they can fit quite comfortably on a coin. How were these made? With a combination of toothpicks, tweezers and a very steady hand.
Can you imagine having a pet cat this small? Felines are hard to catch as they are so having one as tiny as this would just be a nightmare. Cans of Whiskas food would stretch quite far though.
You wouldn’t even be able to see this one if it weren’t for the zoomed in, high-quality image. This long-necked bird must have required so much patience to fold, even with tweezers and toothpicks.
