Europe first learned origami from the Muslims who conquered Spain. Due to the prohibition of human and animal figures in Islamic religion, fragmented origami works involving origami pattern studies and geometric forms are more common than classical origami figures. The Spanish, who met the origami, became a part of their culture and brought many new figures to the origami. In fact, the first origami school “Unamuno” was opened in Spain by Miguel Unamuno (1864-1936). One of the prominent names of the Spanish in origami in South America is Ismael Adolfo Cerceda. Cerceda, who lives in Baenos Aires, is actually a knife shooter master. Cerceda, who started making origami just to calm her nerves, developed herself very much and produced many new figures.
Friedrich Frobel is the first to use origami as an educational tool.
