Origami do Brazil

I have found a Brazilian's origami ("historical") blog where you can see 2 series of "minhas dobraduras". The first has 17 models and the 2nd, 4 models.

Nothing is mentioned about the date (and place of publication) but the drawing looks like (for me, but I could be wrong) the 1950's or the 1960's.

So please go to http://origamibrazil.blogspot.fr and tell us more...

ps the frog is not described in the 21 showed models.

Cool. I would say 40's or 50's. The blogger's name is Fabio Moura. Did you send him a message through the blog?
He participates in another website:
http://origami-brasil.blogspot.com.ar

I think Fabio Moura is only a follower of the blog (not updated from September 2010).
It seems no possible (for me) to contact directly the blogger follower of the website you mention.
I just put, today, a comment on the "modelo 01" (in Spanish and English) : we will see...

In the first blog (orgamibrazil.blogspot.fr) he's the only member. So maybe he's the creator. Lucia da Costa, a Brazilian paperfolder, sent him a message through its contact page. But who knows if he will get back, the site seems inactive. In the second site, this man Fabio Moura, is one of many. We'll see what happens.
Lucia may bring some information from Brazil. It's a very interesting topic, we know nothing about its history and there is a large Japanese community especialy in Sao Paulo and origami is strong in Brazil. She's traveling in the next few days to Brazil (she's living in Buenos Aires now) and said she'll try to do some research.
