Now when it comes to making different birds out of origami it seems that most people seem to think of the traditional cranes. Now these cranes are very beautiful but what has been more impressive to me has been the origami-swan. It is still very impressive to me how creative people can be with a simple piece of paper. I was in Japan a few years ago and when I got off of the plane I was very hungry so my friends and I decided to go and get something to eat. As we went to look at all of the different restaurants I noticed that there was a museum in the airport.
After my friends and I finished eating I suggested that we go and check out the museum, now my friends did not want to go but ended up going with me, the museum was dedicated to the art of origami and it was so beautiful that I fell in love with origami at that very moment. I walked around the museum for hours, I walked around for so long that all of my friends left me to go and check the hotel out. I simply could not believe how beautiful the museum was, there were hundreds of different pieces of the origami art. There were gardens all made out of paper, there were statues and little cities with people and fireworks, and it was beautiful! There was even little statues made to represent figures of the past, it was all so much for me to take in. I love this museum so much that I went back three more times before we left Japan.
The first time that I was there, I noticed that there was a section where you can make your own origami creation, now I knew that I was not going to be able to make anything to match what was made and on display in the museum but I still wanted to give it a try and I really wanted to be able to start making creations at home. The first piece that I made was an origami-heart. Now this was simple but I was very proud of myself. However, I saw a person making an origami-swan and I was very impressed, it was so pretty and only slightly more complex than the heart that I had made.
When I left Japan and returned home I decided to look in to making the origami-swan, I have now mastered it and along with the fish that I make, I get the most compliments on the swan. When it comes to origami, it is an art that is delicate, beautiful, and invokes the mind to think of gardens and pleasant things, the origami-swan plays right in to this and I think that this is why the swan creates such a beautiful feeling for everyone, it is fairly simple to make and it is very popular, a lot of people really like them. The beauty of origami swan will always be cherished.
