animals: elephant

On a break from modular origami here’s an elephant. Folded from marbled paper of 80g/m2 in a grayish/ greenish tone and 21×21 cm. The final model is 5.5x7cm; 10×7 if you count the tail and the trunk. It’s 10 cm wide, much of it thanks to the ears :)
The diagram came from Origami Tanteidan Convention volume 5, page 60. The name is ゾウ/ elephant and is by 川畑文昭/ Kawahata Fumiaki.

This one is made in 52 steps. As for me they were 52 easy to understand steps :) and the final result is very realist; everyone can actually see that’s an elephant! And that’s always good.
