Sculpsite.com News 
Paper Sculptures by Artist Francene Levinson transform modular 3d Origami into beautiful museum quality fine art - that is the tag-line of her website. That pretty much says it all, except for the fact that this work is world class, I can say it and mean it! The design, it's fluidity and detail - click here and get lost for a while
