Fun Link Friday: A Single Sheet Samurai

Are you serious about origami? How serious is serious?

Because according to Colossal, Finnish artist Juho Könkkölä might have you beat. Using upwards of thousands of individual folds, Könkkölä spent 50+ hours creating a fully-armored origami samurai figure using only one sheet of rice paper.

Honestly, I can’t even imagine haven’t the bandwidth to figure out the how (and maybe even the why?). In addition to some stunning photographs on Könkkölä’s social media  of the samurai and many other battle-ready figures, he also posted a video showing the whole process. Happy viewing!
