Traditional Japanese art: origami from triangular modules

From tradition to modernity


The origins of this work a lot. Perhaps origami masters invented various legends to awaken curiosity from new students. For example, the paper crane is a symbol of love, hope and faith. It is believed that if you make a thousand figurines of a crane, give them to all your friends and family, the most cherished desire is sure to be fulfilled.

Assembling modular origami


Find schemes of various modular origami online. Ordinary office paper or recording units are also suitable for home crafts. For the work useful stationery knife, ruler and glue. It is needed to attach small parts and decorations. Sometimes large modules are simply stitched together.
To make a triangular module, an A4 sheet must be divided into several equal parts. Their size will depend on the volume of your figure. It is better to initially determine for yourself the convenient size of the triangles. Identical modules are convenient because the crafts can be easily disassembled and create a new one.
From each part one triangle is created. The correct module should turn out with two lower "pockets". Traditionally, there are two concepts that are called "valley" or "mountain". To bend with the valley means to arrange the smaller part of the triangular module towards you.Bend the mountain - to arrange this part of the triangle away from you.
As you can see, the differences lie in combining these modules with each other. Figures are formed by inserting the angle of one module in the pocket of another. The basic principle of folding triangular modules is the same for all crafts.
