Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: Here are the first two paragraphs of the article on origami, consistuting about one-fourth of the whole. Below is a graphic of the page on which the article begins. origami
Folded paper; also the art of folding paper to form shaped figures and ornamental objects. Origami ranges from a simple form of child's play to a complex art form. It is used in certain Japanese ceremonies and rituals, as well as for practical, educational, and entertainment purposes.
Background --Origami as a form of entertainment was not practiced during ancient times when paper was scarce and hence very valuable; it probably began during the Heian period (794-1185). Origami with only folding and no cutting developed first in the Muromachi period (1333-1568). In the Edo period (1600-1868) other techniques of folding, cutting, and dyeing paper were developed. By the Taisho period (1912-26) patterns for some 150 different kinds of origami figures had been established. Contemporary origami is distinguished from paper cutting, paper sculpture, and kumigami (paper assembling). The new art of creative origami does not, generally speaking, use cutting or coloring techniques, and the main pattern of expression is cubic.
