Origami display for the Mayor
The Mayor of Gibraltar, John Gonçalves, City Hall staff and students from the Gibraltar College of Further Education were recently treated to a spectacular and unique display of the art of Origami.
This was the culmination of reciprocal visits between the College and the Mayor when College student, Antonio Olivero, kindly proposed demonstrating his Origami-making skills.
Antonio explained at length the process entailed in creating something as beautiful as a lotus flower from a single sheet of paper, with intricate folds and mathematical formulae.
Perhaps overlooked as an art form, the audience were struck by his creations and were left with a sense of awe at how this young person, who aspires to represent Gibraltar abroad, uses his immense intellect to create items of beauty, a spokesman for the Mayor’s office said.
