What is Left of the US Dollar?

A Chinese-American named Won Park has found the answer.

View the pictures below and you will understand what is meant. The technique applied is called Origami and is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding. The objective of this art is to create an image of an object using geometric folds and crease patterns if achievable without the use of gluing or cutting the paper, and using only one piece of paper for each figure.

Won Park has a master’s degree in Origami. He is also called the “money folder”, a practitioner of origami whose “canvas” is the US one-dollar bill.

Bending, twisting, and folding, he creates life-like shapes in stunning detail.

Quite amazing …
