Origami (折り紙) is the art of paper folding (the term is derived from Japanese, where "oru" means "folding" and "kami" is translated from "paper"). Paper folding was originally conceived in China between the 1st and 2nd century, this ancient craft was first introduced into Japan around the 6th century when paper came to be imported in by Buddhist monks (attributed to one monk named Dokyo in particular). Since then, paper folding grew to become an art form and evolved into what we know today as origami. As paper was very expensive in those early days, the art of paper folding was originally reserved for wealthy families.
Today, Origami has come to become a fun and creative pastime that requires dexterity, attention to detail and precision. Akira Yoshizawa, widely considered to be the father of modern origami, single-handedly came up with at least 50,000 origami models and brought origami to what it is today.
