After having folded and decorated origami cranes daily for 1000 consecutive days (see my previous post on Bored Panda), I took a short break, but I could not stop creating new ones, even though no longer on a daily basis.

I am allowing myself to explore more themes and techniques, and to find inspiration in even more places.

These are some of my latest creations. Some are inspired by things like Greek mythology and Japanese folklore, while others come from the joy of nature, or personal experiences.

okay, question- after he made 1000 of these things, what the actual hecky dizzle did he do with them? first of all they probably take up a lot of space considering there's 1000 of them but also they're so delicate so they have to be placed in somewhere safe. I AM CONFUSION
