Cherry Blossom Week: Ikebana Origami

 

Origami is the Japanese art of folding.  Ikebana is a Japanese art of flower arranging that focuses greatly on the stem and leaves of a plant.  Some styles are based on the scalene triangle, representing heaven, earth and man.  Individually, both forms of art are eye-pleasing and crafted with perfection.  When the two are merged, they make much more than the origami paper planes we all used to create in 5th grade.  See below.
