Intricate and gorgeous, this golden paper jungle by Johanna Burke is actually completely made of paper. The gorgeous display is for a luxury goods store located in Korea.

The meticulous details of all of the Venus flytraps, orchids, and passion flowers were all made with nothing but patience, talent and a trusty pair of scissors.

Implications - As the wide adoption of technology and consumer gadgets continues, nostalgic art mediums are making a comeback. Traditional artistic techniques, such as paper-cutting, collage and origami, find a new foothold in the burgeoning DIY movement, which focuses on handmade pieces made the "old-fashioned way." Online art communities and how-to sites such as Etsy and Instructables fuse technology and traditionalism.
