Watch Artist Sipho Mabona Make A Full-Size Elephant By Folding One Piece Of Paper
SWISS artist Sipho Mabona has created a life-sized elephant by folding a single sheet of paper measuring 15m square. The paper elephant is 10 feet tall. It took 12 people a week to create.
It sounds like a specious activity. But as anyone who has tried to fold paper into anything more than a hat or plane knows, it’s not easy. Mabana is very good at it.
Next time you need to distract children for a few moments, you can wonder how useful it would be to fold that napkin into an elephant.
You can see the big elephant at the KKLB in Beromünster, Switzerland.
If that’s too large for your mantlepiece, you can buy small, ceramic version as you exit via the gift shop:
