The paper cutting technique is said to have developed sometime around 700 AD and with time, evolved in different cultures around the world. In Japan, this technique is known as Kirie (or Kirigami).

However, the Japanese artist Masayo Fukuda is a master on this filed. She has practiced the art of hand-cutting paper for about 25 years, and we’re about to show you, one of her best creations.
