Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. It started in Japan in the 17th century and was introduced to western culture in the 1900s. It has since evolved into a form of modern art. One might be inclined to consider this artform easy given that many of us have been folding paper since childhood. Far from it. After spending about 4 hours with an Origami book, and armed with the one hour Youtube tutorial, and still being unable to get it right; I can safely say Origami is not for everybody.
