It is almost spring, and I was looking for cherry blossom pictures from the Seattle Japanese Garden when I stumbled upon origami artist Sipho Mabona’s life-sized paper elephant project. He must be African, I thought, but he was born in Switzerland and lives there in Luzern. The artist took a single 50 ft by 50 ft piece of paper, and folded an elephant out of it. (He did have assistants help him lift the paper and fold it with his instructions).
Check out some of his other work on his Flickr page, at this link.
