German artist, Anja Markiewicz, manipulates paper into super tiny shapes such as a flower, pig, horse, swan, fish, cow and so much more. She has called it her nano origami because the finished pieces are extremely small – much smaller than regular origami.
Origami actually means “folding” (ori-) “paper” (-gami) and Markiewicz uses her hands and a toothpick to fold the paper into paper sculptures that are simply amazing in their detail. I dare say that she has patience.
Can you guess why this is my favorite? (grin)
Hey my little arachnophobic daughter…Would you like me to buy you one of these pieces?
