Origami Artisan

Origami (paper folding), [1] was the art of creating small beautiful objects and animals from small squares of paper. [2]

History Edit

For centuries this skill had been used for ceremonies and rituals, and it had become highly regarded in Rokugan. Origami emphasized straight lines and sharp angles, and it originated from a monk who lived alone at a shrine to Hotei, the Fortune of Contentment. The most popular shape to make was the crane, a symbol of contentment and long life. Different paper was useable in the creation of origami, but the Kakita Artisans prefered to use only the finest rice paper. Origami using paper with wash colored patterning was called kawari-e origami. [3]
