Natalija Budinski

pp. 1-30

There is no consensus where origami originated, but it is assumed that its roots are in China associated with the discovery of paper. However, the craft of origami blossomed in Japan, where it is treated as national art. Origami is usually connected to fun and games, and the most common association with origami is a crane which has a special place in Japanese culture. The popularity of modern origami has grown in many aspects, mathematical, scientific, artistic, or even an enjoyable craft.
