Adorning the Miniature Zojo-ji Temple

Continuing the collaborative project Toy-kyo...

 

Happy Miniature Sunday!

 

Toy-kyo is ready for spring festivals and it's time to adorn the miniature Buddhist temple with some traditional origami! Setting-up the paper crane on the roof of one of traditional buildings.

 

By the way, did you know that secret of paper-making was brought to Japan long time ago (about 1400 years ago) by Buddhist monks, who probably were the first ones to fold paper into different figures too!

 

Stay tuned for more tilt-shift digi-magic in twin-mini-town of Toy-ronto :-)

Happy folding!
