Origami is the Japanese art of folding paper to create decorative shapes and figures. I made basic stuff like goldfish and frogs. I think my proudest accomplishment was when I made a crane that flapped its wings when you yanked on its tail. Wait, do cranes have tails? SMH
Anyway, point is, origami is a bitch to create and making the wrong fold can wreak havoc 10 or 20 folds down the line. This makes the origami work of Japanese Twitter artist Ezuno (@ezunogunndann) that much more impressive.
Ezuno’s work looks more like carved sculptures than a single piece of folded paper.
The detail and craftsmanship of Ezuno’s most recent work below shocked Japanese Twitter.
“I made an origami Sanada Yukimura, the samurai hero of the Sengoku Period. It’s a single piece of 92cm by 92cm (26in by 26in) paper without any cutting,” Ezuno explained.

▼ Take a peek at this origami rooster. It took Ezuno over a year of folding!

As for my origami career, I think I’ll stick to my paper crane. I figured it’s best to retire at the top of my game.
