    Default Orchids from origami

    One of my other on-and-off hobby is origami. Robert Lang is one of (if not the most) origami masters in US. Here are two of his creations, I wish I could learn how to do that!

    Wow! I like to do origami too, but I don't think I could ever manage THAT!

    Oooh, that is very beautiful!
    I am an origami fan too! I have many of Robert Lang's books.
    I don't think I will ever attempt Lang insect models, they are just way too difficult for my little mind.
    The most challenging model I have completed (twice) is the Kawasaki rose.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Funny you mentioned kawasaki rose. You are probably far more advanced than I am. After my first struggle with the model (which I did complete), I was so fed up with origami, I didn't fold anything for 6 years.
