Origami Santa Claus (Yukihiko Yamaguchi) - Origami Santa Claus (Naoto Horiguchi) - Origami Santa Claus for Artist Trading Cards (Hideo Komatsu) - Origami Tree (Toshikazu Kawasaki) - Origami Trunk (Yoshio Tsuda)

This is one of the last meeting-points where origami Santa's gather together and discuss about the world of "Humans" and how they maybe can change it.

A foldable kusudama-fire keeps them warm.

Did you know that Santa's don't need any sleep at all? I didn't ;-)

***Artist trading cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern trading cards baseball cards, or 2 1⁄2 by 3 1⁄2 inches (64 mm × 89 mm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.

The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland.

Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or fiber.

The cards are usually traded or exchanged. When sold, they are usually referred to as art card editions and originals (ACEOs).(Wikipedia)
