This insane papercraft castle is by Wataru Itou, and the art piece is called 'Umi no Ue no Oshiro' (A Castle On the Ocean). It's currently being exhibited at Uminohotaru, which is near Tokyo.

Take a look at the incredible detail Wataru Itou's papercraft castle includes. According to Gizmodo, this piece took four years to create and includes lights and a moving train. Fantastic.

Implications - This example proves that cultures all across the world are fascinated by the phenomenon of papercraft, and its presence has become so revered that the general public is readily willing to accept it as a feature in museums. Corporations can appeal to this niche market of consumers by tailoring advertisements or products which feature this unique art form.
