Nagasaki, Japan, recently featured an intricate outdoor installation called Folding for Peace -- a plot of blossoms fabricated through a scrupulous process of creasing and fixing together pieces of paper. The product was mind-bogglingly magnificent in its execution and expression of incredible detail.
Undertaken by artist Anouk Vogel, the blooming plot of bright white petals, stems and leaves was a gesture that called for the divine reward of the paper-folding practice. But instead of making the 1,000 origami cranes that merits a wholesome wish by the creator, this elaborate arrangement is a symbolic request for world peace. A profound sense of serenity would have, however, overcome any individual who beheld the beautiful Folding for Peace paper garden.
