Origami Crane and turtle (Kazuo Kobayashi)

"As the Crane one thousand years, the Tortoise ten thousand years" is an old Japanese saying describing the symbols of youth and old age (long life), the Tsuru (crane) and Kame (turtle).

This beautiful origami-model is from Kazuo Kobayashi. It's folded from one piece of paper, 25x12,5 cm.
