Paper Horse - The practice and study of origami encapsulates several subjects of mathematical interest. Using optimization algorithms, a circle-packing figure can be computed for any uniaxial base of arbitrary complexity.
Origami only uses a small number of different folds, but they can be combined in a variety of ways to make intricate designs. In general, these designs begin with a square sheet of paper, whose sides may be different colors, and usually proceed without cutting the paper. It is a art of paper folding developed by Japan. Yes it is a technical and mathematics science.
