Traditional Japanese origami is said to have been in existence since the 1600s, and the art still thrives as one of the many representations of Japanese culture today. This timeless art of paper folding possesses an elegance that is uniquely its own, and artists throughout the world have plunged deep into its beauty to create original pieces for the sake of art and design.

One such artist is Floriane Touitou, a French origami artist who creates origami sculptures of animals. Each of her sculptures is perched on a handmade wood base and kept inside a glass bell, transforming the meticulously folded works into gorgeous objects to place in the home.

Touitou's 100% handmade origami creations can be purchased from her Florigami Shop on Etsy. Customers will find animals like deer, unicorns, owls, elephants, wolves, and more in their breathtaking paper forms. Crafted with the utmost care, the color of the sculptures are made so as not to fade, preserving their original appearance for great lengths of time.

Showcasing elements of both traditional and modern art, the Florigami sculptures will elegantly add a touch of Japanese craftsmanship to any space.
