Tiger, designed by Hideo Komatsu

- This model was designed by Hideo Komatsu; the rendition in the photograph was folded by Sebastian Kirsch. -

folded from a 130 cm square of foil-backed mulberry paper.

Yes, this model is rather big, but I have to admit that I have a fancy for huge models. Some people may think that they are kitsch.

The tiger is intended to be mounted on a tea box, but it was too big to fit on the photo.
