Miniature paper cranes by Naoki Onogawa

Artist Naoki Onogawa creates dozens of origami cranes, whose wingspan reaches just 1 cm.
His tiny origamis create sculptures similar to bonsai trees invaded by thousands of monochromatic paper creatures.
The idea came to him after seeing 1,000 paper cranes in a school destroyed by the tsunami that devastated Japan after the 2011 earthquake.

Paper animals by artist Calvin Nicholls

Calvin Nicholls’s sculptures are feathered and furry creatures meticulously crafted.
They are so perfect that they appear as if they could jump, fly, and spring out of the canvas. Calvin Nicholls sculpts each detail of an animal’s body, from the difference in plume texture in doves to the strained muscles of a giraffe to the stare of a tiger.
