Known for her extravagant origami installations, 'Mademoiselle Maurice' has created her largest one yet.

The 'Lunar Cycles' installation expands across an entire building and is 49 feet high and 450 feet wide. The colorful installation beautifully reflects lunar cycles and while each individual piece of origami is quite simple, the installation's overall effect is both detailed and striking. The individual origami pieces take the shape of birds and the building was painted black in order for the bird's vibrant colors to stand out. The origami installation took three weeks to set up and is the largest that has ever been found on the streets of Paris.

This beautiful work of art is not only expansive, but the painstaking attention to detail that was required throughout its construction is truly awe-inspiring.
