Naoki Onogawa, a Japanese artist, is bringing origami to new heights, and she’s doing it in the most Japanese manner possible. She folds hundreds of little origami cranes, which subsequently become incredibly delicate Bonsai trees of different hues and styles, inspired by the tale of the 1000 cranes and Sadako Sasaki’s narrative.
“Japanese people have been aware of natural phenomena since ancient times. We worship and co-exist in peace with nature while addressing our phobias about the natural world. As a symbol of nature, trees have a life energy that can be found in all-natural things,” Naoki says on her blog. “I’ve attempted to imbue this vitality into my artworks.” I hope that by gazing at my art, you may sense this vital energy as well.”
