Origami, from oru meaning "folding," and kami meaning "paper") is
the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. The goal of this art
is to create a representation of an object using geometric folds
and crease patterns preferably without gluing or cutting the paper,
and using only one piece of paper. Origami only uses a small number
of different folds, but they can be combined in a variety of ways
to make intricate designs. The most well known form is probably the
Japanese paper crane. In general, these designs begin with a square
sheet of paper whose sides may be different colors or prints.
Contrary to most popular belief, traditional Japanese origami,
which has been practiced since the Edo era (1603-1867), has often
been less strict about these conventions, sometimes cutting the
paper during the creation of the design.
