Origami is beautiful yet fragile, but Floriane Touitou found a way to "preserve" her paper foldings. Floriane protects her intricate origami animals by putting them under glass and these decorations produce a unique charming vibe.

"There is something magical in the transition from a single square sheet of paper to the desired shape: animal or insect, real or imaginary," Touitou said. Her origami creatures are inspired by natural history museums' preservation methods which were widely used in Renaissance Europe.

Floriane (who also has a PhD in Physics) hand-folds her animals using high-quality Washi paper. It is made of paper mulberry following an ancient Japanese technique and has been a world heritage since 2014. Her remarkable work is available on Etsy.
