Origami Yoda

OrigamiYodaOrigami (from ori meaning “folding”, and kami meaning “paper”) is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD, at the latest, and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s.

Since then, this art has evolved and adapted to our times. This excellent representation of Yoda, from Star Wars, was created by Kawahata Fumiaki and is a good sample of this evolution.

Leer en Español:

Origami (palabra formada por ori, que significa “doblar” y kami, por “papel”) es el arte tradicional japonés de doblar el papel. Se inició a finales del Siglo XVII, y adquirió popularidad, fuera de Japón, a mediados de 1900.

Desde entonces, este arte ha evolucionado y se ha ido adaptando a nuestros tiempos. Prueba de ello es esta excelente representación de Yoda, personaje de Star Wars, creado por el artista Kawahata Fumiaki.
