Live Oak Tree from Savannah origami mosaic by Kelly Barker

Kelly leaves in the beautiful and historic city of Savannah, famous for its numerous lovely squares planted with live oak trees with Spanish Moss, and she made this beautiful live oak tree mosaic to participate in the collective origami mosaic.

Origami Live Oak Tree mosaic by Kelly Barker, Savannah, Georgia, USA.

I made a live oak tree, which is a symbol of my city (Savannah GA USA). To be authentic, it should have Spanish Moss hanging from the branches, but we'll have to use our imaginations. It's a bit wonky, but then again, so are real trees.

Kelly also share the pictures below that show the process to create the live oak mosaic.

Origami Pixels

Origami Pixels is a new fun and easy way to make origami tiles that can be joined by folding (no cut, no glue, not tape) to compose beautiful origami mosaics. This type of origami pixels was invented by 2017 by St├ęphane Gigandet, and other types have been designed before. The Origami Pixel Unit page tells more about the history of origami pixels and shows how to fold them and join them.
