The American Museum of Natural History has its Holiday Tree on display, and what’s special about this tree is that it is decorated entirely with Origami Ornaments! The theme of this year’s tree is Wicked, Wild and Wonderful, honoring the Museum’s new exhibition The Power of Poison. The ornaments were created especially for the tree by volunteers who began folding in July to complete hundreds of creations that are displayed on the tree and around its base. Here are some of our favorites from this years display!
A family of Giraffes and a Green Frog
Trio of Witches from Macbeth Surrounding their Cauldron
Red Ants, Bees, Honeycomb
Geko, Rhinos and Peacock
Blue Parrot, Tarantula and Lizards
Pink Flamingos and a Red T Rex
There are tons of Dinosaurs on the Tree, including the orange Stegosaurus seen above (visit the the Museum’s 4th Floor to see his Bones!)
The Origami Holiday Tree will be on Display through January 12, 2014 at the AMNH, Located on Central Park West Between 77th Street and 81st Street (Take the C Train to 81st) in the Grand Gallery, Near the 77th Street exit on the Museum’s First Floor.
