Origami Christmas Ornament, with quotes from the bible on each fold or panel
NA. Very Good. N.d., mid-19th century. Triangular in shape when closed, 10 cm across, 7 cm tall. Opens into a sort of ball, with either three or four quotes in each circle. With 21 biblical quotes, each written over two folds. We call this a Christmas ornament, as with the ribbon, it seems as if it were probably intended to hang from a tree, and the quotations furthers our belief thus, but we do not know this for sure. Regardless, it is a singular piece of origami folk art that captures something about the culture and sentiment of the day. Light soiling to the paper. Possible that two small triangular panels are missing, based on slight tearing, but this object may also be exactly how it was when completed.
