Japanese Papercut 3-Dimensional Card—Hummingbird & Lily
This pop-up card is really a small paper sculpture of a hummingbird drinking from a lily. It is an example of kiri-e, a traditional Japanese papercut art form. When the card is held open, the hummingbird and lily appear suspended in front of a cloud. The front of the closed card has a collage of two decorative papers. Artist Kyoko Niikuni designs her kiri-e nature-oriented vignettes from what she sees from the window of her Seattle-area home. She cuts her shapes from black paper using an X-Acto knife—all by hand. The closed kir-e card measures 5 ½ in x 3 ¾ in. It comes in a white envelope.
