Dollar Origami

Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding.

The goal of this art is to create a representation of an

object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably

without the use of gluing or cutting the paper, and using

only one piece of paper.

Won Park is the master of Origami. He is also called the

"money folder", a practitioner of origami whose canvas is

the United States One Dollar Bill. Bending, twisting, and

folding, he creates life-like shapes in stunning detail.

I think they are all stunning, but my favorites are the crab, the fish and the scorpion! Which one do you like?

I love the fish, and the ?shark! So clever, especially from a dollar bill! I'm afraid my fingers are far too stiff, and anyway, if I am honest, were never much good at intricate stuff like that!

Don't think I could bring myself to use a 5BP note to do origami - that would be about $7 or $8. (We have coins below that denomination.)

That is more than I get from a dollar.
I like all of your choices, plus the duck.

G'day Judy, that's about all a dollar is good for now-a-days.
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas my friend and that 2010 is all you wish for.

There are some neat things there and worth more than the original dollar.
