Finnish Artist Creates Insanely-Detailed Origami Samurai from Single Sheet of Wenzhou Paper

Taking over 50 hours to make.

Finnish origami artist Juho Könkkölä has just released images of an origami samurai made from a single piece of paper.

Taking over 50 hours to make, the sculpture started off as a 95cm x 95cm sheet of Wenzhou paper. He then spent the next few days carefully planning the intricate paper samurai by laying out detailed creases and folds. Then, over the next few months, Könkkölä worked carefully in shaping the body with clips, water, a brush, and a hairdryer.

The end result is a 21cm-tall origami samurai that sees great detail and stands on its own. The artist also shared a video showing the various steps it took in completing the project. Check out the video below and have a look above for different angles of Juho Könkkölä’s origami samurai.
