Colorful Bonsai Trees Made of Thousands of Miniature Origami Cranes

These colorful bonsai trees look quite normal from distance. However, when you take a close look, you will find those colorful leaves are actually miniature origami cranes. Inspired by the Japanese legend of the 1000 cranes (anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by the gods), Japanese artist Naoki Onogawa folds hundreds of miniature origami cranes which later become beautifully delicate Bonsai trees of various colors and styles. Take a look at some of her amazing works below! I simply can’t imagine how she is able to fold that tiny crane.
