Happy Easter! Live Long and Prosper :-)

Re-posting this image, just to wish a Happy Easter to you all!

(no need to comment)



Wanted to share the final image from a series of shots with our origami Easter Eggs.

The origami Easter Egg is designed by me and my husband and folded from a leaflet of a lovely exhibition "Live Long and Prosper", displaying images of Longevity in Japanese Ukiyo-e. Another case of recycling paper materials :-) Origami is such an eco-friendly art!


The classic paper crane, folded from Moriki Kozo, happened just land atop the egg :-) It's not a part of the egg itself.


...Thinking of Japan and sending the best withes to all people there!


Happy Easter or any spring holidays!


A note for origami enthusiasts:

This Large Origami Egg folds from one rectangle, 3:4, no glue. The diagrams are published in the eBook "Origami Xmas Ornaments".

Happy folding!
