These Origami Cranes are Totaly Man Made (We Promise!)

Paper cranes are still popular with kids, and anyone who can make them is automatically considered paper-savvy. But this artist crafts origami paper cranes that are next level. They look so good you’ll think they are machine made.

Cristian Mariancuic is a paper artist, creating new paper cranes every single day. His decision to stick through it was made four years ago and has been successful so far.

The designs include layers of different colored paper, which detailed cuts look like feathers, and with gilded elements added on the wings.

Marianciuc allows the cranes to develop over a few days. But Introducing more intricate folds proves to be an everyday challenge. The artist uses his Instagram page to showcase his work.
