origami trees

"These trees are intricately crafted from branches and recycled paper sourced from magazines and other high-quality papers. Each piece is meticulously folded using the traditional Japanese art of origami. The specific name given to these trees is 'un no ki,' which translates to 'tree of luck' in Japanese.


The significance of these trees goes beyond their aesthetic appeal. The primary element used in their creation, the origami crane, holds deep cultural and symbolic meaning in Japanese tradition. The crane is not just a beautiful bird; it is a powerful symbol representing honor, good fortune, loyalty, and longevity.

According to Japanese belief, folding 1,000 origami cranes demonstrates immense patience and commitment. It is said that anyone who accomplishes this feat will be bestowed with good fortune and granted a wish. The origami crane, with its formidable characteristics, is considered a harbinger of positive energy and blessings.


Therefore, these 'un no ki' not only serve as visually captivating decorations but also carry with them a profound cultural significance. They embody the artistry of origami and the enduring belief in the transformative power of dedication and patience, symbolized by the mythical journey of folding 1,000 cranes."
