Samurai Helmet Beetle


Origami Samurai Helmet Beetle

It is hard to believe that all the features in this model were created from a single square of paper with no cuts - the model shown was folded from tissue paper treated with methyl cellulose. This is the design that started to show me what is possible in the world of origami. It was designed by Robert Lang, and diagrams are available in his book Origami Insects II.
