Although it is under debate, many speculate that the art of folding paper, known as origami, originated in China in the early first century AD. Since that time, origami has risen to an established and respected art form in many parts of the world. Origami is suitable for people of nearly any age, as origami sculptures run the gamut from simple to painstakingly complex. A common motif in origami is animals, such as the well-known crane, frogs, and even lion's heads.
