The handcraft of paper-folding can be traced back to the Han Dynasty (202BC-AD220). A piece of ordinary paper is made into a lovely “animal” after being folded several times. The giant panda is native only to China, numbering more than 1,000. Looking clumsily and innocently cute and adored universally, it is China’s national treasure.
