The art of origami began in Japan after monks brought paper from China in the sixth century. Origami continued to maintain its religious and ceremonial character until the 1600s. As paper began to be mass-produced and as it became more affordable, paper folding became a popular recreational activity throughout Japanese culture. Today, origami is popular throughout the world. If you‘d like to make some origami paper art of your own, here are some patterns to try.
Since ancient times, the Japanese have viewed the crane as a symbol of long life and good fortune. Nowadays, when people refer to "a thousand origami cranes," they generally really mean a thousand. But in the past, the phrase "a thousand origami cranes" referred to a large number of paper cranes. The number did not have to be exactly 1,000.
It is believed that string of 1,000 paper cranes is a symbol of longevity. It is also traditional to give this to people who are ill or hospitalized, as a way to wish for their recovery and a long, healthy life.
