As have mentioned in another post, the yellow butterflies fluttering about Mauricio Babilonia in One Hundred Years of Solitude is an image that has stayed imprinted in my mind since reading that wonderful book. These butterflies were my gateway to Gabriel García Márquez’s world of magical realism.
Today I join the universal chorus of fans giving tribute to the life and work of this great literary master.
To celebrate and honor the work of García Márquez (1927-2014), I invite you to fold a yellow origami butterfly. Then share it on the Facebook page of OrigamiSpirit.
Here are two videos with instructions to make origami butterflies. If you are beginning with origami, practice first by making some easier origami figures.
