    We used to do Origami birds, that was awesome of how simple it is, I lost my touch though, if you don`t do it on even yearly bases, you just forget how to do it.

    Amazing, all these animals are created with paper but still you can feel the “emotions” like anger, happiness.

    Hats off to the artists.

    Yes, inspiring origami models indeed, but too bad that no credit is given to any of the designers or the photographers of these pieces. Your audience would be enriched if you shared that information.
