THE FLYING CRANE Hello everyone,
this is the first video of Imagiro! A channel which will talk
about origamis…and more. As first origami I introduce you…
the flying crane. that is the top origami symbol. I’ll talk briefly about the history well, you must know that this origami is born officially this kind of origami thanks to the book Senbazuru Orikata The folding of a thousand cranes of the thousand cranes published in 1797 from there it has born the motto of the desire that can emanate only after
the folding of a thousand cranes. Indeed it’s famous the scene the episode, excuse me in which a little girl after the atomic bomb on Hiroshima to recover wanted to fold a thousand cranes and grant her wish to recover. Sadly she died before she could do it and thank to this episode the crane became the symbol of peace and to this little girl was
made a statue, in her honor. Well, now let’s start with the tutorial. Well in the beginning we always start
from a square sheet, like this one afterwards we create the propedeutical folds that is, folds which facilitate our work. We start directly with a fold on the diagonal on the other diagonal of the square,
so that it becomes a tringle like this and then we re-open it, this way from here on we can repeat the act of folding but paying attention to this passage this passage first of all we fold it square-shape this way folding the triangle from a summit to another, using the opposite angle and arching the parts not previously folded now I repeat the act because it must be repeated specularly we grab the angle we move it to the other side not folding this way but moving all all the paper so that it archs from the sides in this way so the square builds up like this here from now on we must make other propedeutical folds so we rotate it so that we have these parts on top and then we start to make three propedeutical folds, first folding in rectangular triangle shape the external side, one and two in this way then folding the the lower angle towards the center in this way well, once we’re done with this we return to the beginning and we proceed like this we move the upper vertex as downwards as we can using the fold angle created before with with the lower vertex… with the lower angle, excuse me
in this way so we create a rhombus with the major diagonal in evidence, here, this way The same thing must be repeated
specularly on the other side, that is propedeutical folds, one and two and then fold from the bottom to the top we return to the beginning and from the beginning then we still use the fold from the bottom which we created before to leverage from the upper vertex to the lower one, this way like this paying attention to make good folds here from here now we must bring one side to the opposite extremity that is, we bring from the right to the left, like this and then specularly, on the other side from the right to the left, in this way. Now we’re close to the end basically we lift up of 90 degrees the lower part, the one that resembles a rhombus we lift up the lower part, the one of the triangle, in this way
excuse me for the pun one, anche on the other side, two and these will be the future wings. Then we grab it and we make a sidelong fold
which tends outwards in this way, like this one, and on the other side two here, we’re close to the end because we create the head arching the summit towards the center
but lightly, by 90 degrees even more and bending in the center,
creating a situation like his,
for the head the we open slightly the wings like this,
and we are facing the flying crane. The paper must be rigid but however even with a classic A4
we can obtain a good outcome in this way
here you are! This is our first origami follow us in our channel! Thank you.
