Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding, which started in the 17th century AD in Japan at the latest and was popularized outside of Japan in the mid-1900s.
It has since then evolved into a modern art form. The goal of this art is to transform a flat sheet of paper into a finished sculpture through folding and sculpting techniques, and as such the use of cuts or glue are not considered to be origami.
The number of basic origami folds is small, but they can be combined in a variety of ways to make intricate designs. The best known origami model is probably the Japanese paper crane.
