A while back we covered a crowdfunding project that had a goal to construct a life-sized origami elephant. Sipho Mabona has recently delivered the promised product – an elephant folded from a single sheet of paper that measured 50 feet by 50 feet.
The ambitious sculpture required a team of over a dozen people and four weeks to reach completion. The finished elephant stands just over 10 feet tall and is now on display in the museum KKLB in Beromünster, Switzerland. Take a close look at the beautiful detail textures on this massive origami sculpture and head to Mobona’s website to see more of his amazing work.
