I have seen tons of origami in my time, but nothing compares to the work of the late Eric Joisel. Eric Joisel was a French artist who specialized in creating unique pieces of paper art that shared more similarities with statues than with paper cranes.

Eric Joisel's work has been exhibited all over the world, from Tokyo to the Louvre. My favorite pieces have to be the warrior statues. The level of skill required to create something so intricate out of a single sheet of paper is simple astounding.
