Origami Elephant by Sipho Mabona

Sipho Mabona has taken a folding technique that was used in ancient civilizations to a new level. When he was 5 he started to make paper plans and ran out of design ideas when he was 15, which pushed him to draw from other inspirations. His work was the first from a foreigner that was on the cover of the Japan Origami Academic Society Magazine that.

The Switzerland based origami artist has created a full sized elephant using a continuous sheet of paper. Mabona has produced the dimensions of the white elephant, which stands about 3 meters tall, using one segment of white paper that measures 15 by 15 meters. Mabona has filmed the process of constructing the elephant because making the sculpture is a performance it self.

It starts off as a two-dimensional plane into its full form. There is no limit to origami according to the artist as the sculpture proves to be concurrently powerful and silent. The White Elephant” is currently on display at KKLB in Switzerland.
