Origami is the art of paper folding. The word comes from Japanese and the japanese tradition of this art has strongly influenced its history in the West. It is one of the most ancient popular art and would have already appeared during the Western Han dynasty (202 BC - 9 AD)

It is called 折纸 zhézhi in Chinese which means "to fold paper"
