Paper Sculpture

What is Paper Sculpture?
There were traces of paper sculpture as early as the year 105 AD. That was around the time when paper became known and available to everyone. Before that, it wasn't made in large quantities. With this new product coming out, creativity was sparked in the minds of people, and small paper sculptures were turned into masterpieces.

This is the first time I see a Star of David paper sculpture in Jewish art ad that’s why I decided to include this splendid work on my blog. The script is made in micrography.
