“May the wings of the butterfly kiss the sun
And find your shoulder to light on,
To bring you luck, happiness and riches
Today, tomorrow and beyond.”
I folded this origami butterfly with a page taken from a magazine. On one side was the picture of a leafless tree and the reverse side was black. What I liked about the figure folded from this piece of paper was the way the tree’s dark branches became the patterning on the white wings of the butterfly.
This origami model was designed by Michael LaFosse.
