Google Doodle Celebrates Father Of Origami


The Japanese art of origami is the inspiration for today’s Google Doodle, created in celebration of what would have been the 101st birthday of Akira Yoshizawa, considered to be the father of the art of paper folding.

Yoshizawa, who also died on this day in 2005, was named to the Order of the Rising Sun, one of highest honours that can be given to a Japanese citizen, and acted as a cultural ambassador for the country throughout his career.
