Origami, as most of us know, is the traditional Japanese way of folding paper into beautiful shapes, creatures, objects and other things. It is a very high form of art and it takes necessary skills to make them. Some even go beyond the norms and make realistic or sometimes even more than that. Due to its eye-captivating properties, Origami had become famous all over the world, not just in Japan or in Asia.
List of the best and most amazing origami artworks
Without further do, here are 5 of the best and most awesome origami artworks to date:
The Bahamut or the Divine Dragon is a character from the Final Fantasy series (video game). It was designed by Satoshi Kamiya and folded by Brian Chan. The level of difficulty in this one is quite obvious that it took a lot of effort with each and every detail of the dragon’s parts. Even the feet and the head parts have fully-detailed folded creases, which makes it truly realistic.
The phoenix is a legendary bird that has risen from the ashes. This origami is designed by Chow Hin Chung and folded by Alex Yue. This one was found in an exhibition in Toronto Airport, captivating a lot of audiences. The tail part is really detailed and looks quite hard to make. Much like the dragon origami mentioned above, this too packs effort, skill and detail.
This King Cobra origami art was designed by Ronald Koh and folded by James Lucas. This is one realistic piece of origami art! From the scales, details of the snake’s skin, to everything else, this cobra is truly a masterpiece, and took the person to fold it 4 months (now that’s effort!).
This is a yellow and blue-colored origami castle designed and folded by Yuri and Katrin Shumakov on their Oriland Exhibition (Origami Heaven event). The details on this one are h3 and the size plays a large role to its beauty and exquisiteness. With the plants, flowers and other attraction origami aside, this castle is truly a top-notch origami design and artwork that almost looks like a cake or a real castle for that matter.
Who says you can’t make a superhero or action figure origami? This one proves that wrong. The Ironman origami was designed and folded by Brian Chan and almost resembles a real Ironman action figure, folded from an uncut square. He also made a cute mask version of the comic book superhero. The choice of paper is quite important and creative on this one (gold-colored paper).
