Origami superimposed by Marc Fichou

As much as I love skillful origami, the Japanese art of folding paper into sculptures, there is a reason why I made it a recurring theme in Potpourri, rather than here: for me it is more about crafts than fine art. However, I make an exception for the work of Marc Fichou, who creates great origami animals, and then photographs them with the paper similar to the one they were folded from as background. The combined effect is stunning and makes it suitable for my art blog. As always, all rights retained by the creator.
