Kusudama is a paper model that is created by assembling multiple identical units together. Kusudama originates from ancient Japanese culture, where they were used as an amulet. Then it became used for incense and potpourri, originally being actual bunches of flowers or herbs. The word itself is a combination of two Japanese words Kusuri, Medicine, and Tama, Ball. They are now typically used as decorations, or as gifts.
