NEW YORK (AP) An origami flower, which was a rare find in New York City last year, has attracted a new and strange fascination in the city.
The flower, made of colorful paper and with a heart shaped like a heart, has appeared in a New York restaurant and is now in the hands of a local origami artist.
The artist, called The Origami Fairy, told the Associated Press that the design was originally a drawing of a person who is wearing a hat.
The origami flowers have become so popular, she said, that she has started making her own.
The design was inspired by the famous Japanese folktale “The Fairies of Wigan Pier,” which describes the adventures of a girl and her fairies who travel to Wigan, England, to protect the princess from a wolf that has become a big pest.
