The Plump Crane
This page attempts to record what is known about the origin and history of the origami design known as the Plump Crane. Please contact me if you know any of this information is incorrect or if you have any other information that should be added. Thank you.



As far as I know the Plump Crane first appears in an illustration by Takei Takeo in a 1927 issue of the children's magazine 'Kodomo No Kuni' (The Land of Children).
