Google doodle is paying tribute to the 'grandmaster of origami', Akira Yoshizawa on his 101th birthday with a video showing paper work objects and paper butterflies associated with him.

Yoshizawa, who was born on 4 March 1911, was the man who turned colorful paper-craft into an art form with his more than 50,000 designs. He also pioneered the technique of wet-folding.

The modern artist's works were also displayed in the Louvre in France.
