    I like origami because when I am doing it, I feel calm. It is a great thing to do in order to relax after a hard working day. But this rabbit doesn`t look like a rabbit at all.

    Of course, everything depends not only on paper or instruction but also on the imagination and skills of the person who is making origami that is why tastes differ.
