Dinosaur Skeletons, designed by Issei Yoshino

- This model was designed by Issei Yoshino; the rendition in the photograph was folded by Sebastian Kirsch. -

folded from 40 23 cm squares of white elephant hide.

The Tyrannosaurus Rex Skeleton and the Triceratops Skeleton are masterpieces of multi-piece origami, each requiring about 20 pieces of paper.

I used steel wire to stabilize the models and make them stand, instead of the assembly method suggested by Yoshino himself.
